    Booting Queries in Lenovo G5070 on Windows 10

    I have a Lenovo Laptop G50 70 with Windows 10 Home Single Language 1511 10586 installed on it.
    Today I had burned a DVD on my Laptop with Pro Version of Windows 10 (Bootable ISO)
    After the burning of the DVD was complete, I wanted to test the booting function of recently created Pro version of Windows 10 on my laptop but it failed to boot.
    After I had disabled the "Secure Boot" in bios , I got into the message "press any key to boot from dvd" which I did but this time again it failed to boot .
    I want to know why the booting did not take place? Was it because I was booting a Pro version of Windows 10 on a laptop running Home version of Windows 10.?
    Can someone explain me how the booting of UEFI Mode takes place vis a vis MBR?
    Also can I burn a bootable dvd on desktop PC or anywhere else, and use it on my Laptop as the installation media? My Desktop PC is an old one having MBR booting system.
    Are there any limitations of DVD burned on an MBR system not booting into a Laptop having UEFI Mode?
    Please help me understand how does it happen and what are parameters to keep in mind while burning a bootable DVD?
    Thanks for help

    Hi, sounds more like there's a problem either with your drive or the disc. Do you have any other boot disks, and do any work?

    The ISO determines what's burnt to the disk, not the configuration of your laptop, so you can burn it wherever you like.

    You could check your DVD format with e.g. CDcheck (freeware).

    Mr Dalchina thanks for response. But the same dvd boots on my Desktop PC. I burned this DVD with Roxio . Other DVDs with the version 10240 also did.
    Could ISO which I burned have some limitations on it?
    Should I disable the UEFI mode in bios of my laptop and try once again?
    I will also check the dvd with CDCheck.
    Which is the best Burning Software other than Nero, Roxio and Power2Go which allows me to burn data disc with long file names? In Nero you get the alert for long file names but you can choose to ignore/skip which is very good for me. But in Power2Go you get the alert but You cannot ignore, you will have to shorten the file name and start afresh.If again you get the alert for some other file name, do it repeatedly for hours until all files are compatible with Power2Go. This is harassing. Therefore please suggest me some good burning software which allows me long file names and also where i can burn Secure Disc (Password Protected).
    Thanks for help

    Hmm, your boot priority is clearly ok, as your disk is seen on boot.
    If the disk boots on another PC, that should hopefully be fine.
    Have you checked the Lenovo forum? I'm not familiar with UEFI as my laptop's 6 years old.. but running x64 Win 10 quite well.

    Here's a good summary on the Joliet system for burning disks.
    CDBurnerXP: File System
    I can't recommend a particular program, I'm afraid- there are a lot of results for a search such as
    "long file name burning disk joliet"

    For example, Ashampoo Burning Studio 2016 says:
    In addition to this you can also choose the file system you want to use for data discs and generate it directly. Supported file system options include ISO 9660 levels 1 and 2, ISO 9660 Windows (Romeo), Joliet,and UDF (1.02, 1.5, 2.50, 2.60).
    Cyberlink Power2Go 9 says:
    If available, set the file system (ISO9660/Joliet, UDF 1.5, UDF 2.0, UDF 2.5, or UDF 2.6) you want the disc to have.
    It does support Secure disk.

    My DVD boots properly in my Desktop Pc. Also the same dvd works fine within the OS of laptop.Therefore there is no problem with the ISO.
    After having checked this dvd on PC, I once again reviewed everything and this time i made the following changes to the bios:-
    1 Security Disabled
    2 Legacy Boot enabled
    3 Boot priority set to Legacy First
    4 Dvd Rom first Booting device

    After having done the above changes, this time my dvd with Windows10 Pro booted properly in my laptop.
    Anyway , thanks for taking time and interest on my problem
