Setting the Boot Order is important because it helps you boot from the right device. Basically, the Boor Order defines the order in which the drives will be checked for operating system information by your computer. Usually, your Hard Drive is at the top of the Boot Order. This is mainly because your Windows is installed on your Hard Drive.
Now, when you are trying to install a fresh copy of Windows then you would want your computer to look into your device i.e. Windows CD/DVD or Flash Drive with Windows. This is because if your Hard Drive is at the top of the Boot Order then your computer will check your Hard Drive first, it will find the operating system and simply start your Windows. So, you will change the Boot Order and make sure your Windows CD/DVD or Flash Drive on the top in order to make sure that your computer checks this device first.
