    Cannot boot from CD


    I'm trying to wipe my hard drive with DBAN due to a trojan. I successfully booted from a CD but DBAN (from 2014) only ran 5 seconds, so I burned a CD and a USB thumb drive with the latest version of DBAN. I cannot get the PC to boot from either device despite changing the boot orders and pretty much adjusting just about every option in the BIOS menu thru a tedious, unsuccessful trial-and-error process.
    Any advice is appreciated!
    Thank you.

    I'm not familiar with Dban, but are you sure that cd is bootable??

    How can I tell? It's an .iso file. (DBAN is Darik's Boot and Nuke)

    Okay, I figured out that .iso was not bootable, all good now! Thank you!
