    Have you set the BIOS to boot from the CD/DVD as first priority, before the hard drive?

    Dell uses the F12 key to get to the Boot Menu, have you tried tapping that every second or so when you first boot the computer? It should bring up a menu where you can choose the optical drive to boot from.

    F2 is where I'm seeing the boot options. I have to hit F8 and then I'll see on the bottom right the option of hitting F2 or F12. But I'll try the F12 while booting in a bit.

    A correction..F2 is where I see the CD/DVD boot option. F12 says/lists the following:
    Boot mode is set to UEF I: Secure boot: ON
    UEF I Boot:
    Windows Boot Manager (ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB)
    UEF I Onboard LAN IPv4
    UEF I Onboard LAN IPv6
    Other Options:
    Enter Setup
    Peripheral Device setting (OPROM setting)
    Change boot mode setting

    When hitting F2...on the top there's Main Advance Security Boot Exit
    Under "Boot" obviously is where I find the DVD option. I move the UEF I DVD1 PATH1 (HL-DT-ST DVD+/-RW GU90N) up to the top.

    It looks like when I turn the computer off it resets to the info I gave you above under F12. But when I just did the boot change under F2 and it rebooted(but failed to load up the DVD) I hit F12 and checked- the CD/DVD is listed there, and is #1.

    Still working on this. Got a flash drive but it doesn't boot from that either. Maybe there's something else I could put on the dvd or fd that would boot from it? This Windows 10 thing seems to be more for installing Windows 10 on another computer..although I do see a "boot" folder in there.
