    In short:

    1. decide on which distro you want
    2. download the iso
    3. use a program like img burn to burn the iso to dvd
    4. reboot

    linux DVD


    I have a DVD containing linux. I just want to know how to tell windows 10 on my toshiba to boot from the dvd. I tried to change the UEFI settings but none of them told me how to boot from a dvd. I am not a windows user. I use apple.

    Usually thats controlled by the bios. On some machines you can press F12 after a reboot to change which drive to boot from

    Insert Linux CD/DVD. Then, make sure you do either a restart from the power icon in Windows 10, or do a complete shutdown by holding down shift key when clicking shutdown from the power icon.

    Then you want the second option here (From the Boot Device Menu (temporary setting)):

    I tried several times but could not find a way to tell it to restart to a DVD

    I did a complete shutdown while holding down the shift key.
    I tried to boot but I never saw any options, it just brought window10 up.
    I have a TOSHIBA Satellite C855D which is a laptop.

    Thank you for your patience.

    When your Laptop starts, start tapping the F12 key (especially when Toshiba splash screen appears), this will give you the boot menu to boot from DVD.

    It's option 3. ODD stands for Optical Disc Drive. That's your DVD drive. If that doesn't work then the problem is that the DVD you made is not bootable.
