Windows 10: Boot from CD/DVD

  1.    12 Aug 2016 #1

    Boot from CD/DVD


    I need to run the gparted (Linux app) booting from the CDROM.

    Now I do not find the option for booting from CD/DVD in windows 10 any more. I have done it before, but it seems to have disappeared in Windows 10. Any Ideas?

    Don't think it's a Windows thing but involves the BIOS. During the initial startup you should get a prompt on the black screen to press a key [F10 or F12 maybe] to select what you want to boot to, been that way for quite awhile. Some BIOSes need either F2 or Del key to be pressed so as to enter the BIOS Setup and select boot devices and order of searching for boot files.

    Since Windows 10 this procedure has not worked.
    My laptop is an ASUS UX31E. I found a procedure which should have solved the problem: Windows 10 - How to enter BIOS configuration?.
    I got into the BIOS setup, but there was no option to change the boot drive.
    Any Ideas?

    I'm still able to change boot devices in Win 10 Pro by holding "shift" and pushing restart. YMMV

    after updating to 10 in OEM PCs BOOT mode is changed to UEFI> some time you have to manually add a boot option.
    Please share make and model of your motherboard/// or Model of your Laptop/computer

    Could be on newer OEM computers but none of my OEM computers, Desktops and Notebooks, had to change but then they are 3 years of age and a bit older. I do have a 2 year old Tablet that is UEFI Upgraded from Win8.1 to Win10.

    You have to Enable Legacy eprom Options in BIOS.. so UEFI identifies NON-UEFI boot devices,

    This Video may Help.
