It is recommended to first quickly read this article from top to bottom without taking actions. After you roughly understood how it’s supposed to work, re-read this page and do it step-by-step. Exercise this with test keys first. If that works, consider doing this with your primary keys.

You should know how to boot other operating systems than your primary every day operating system from Live DVD and/or other external media such as USB.
