    I have a USB stick plugged in for the keyboard and that's about it. The rest are available to use.

    It does bug me that it won't boot from a disk.

    I noticed that there were 4 flash drives plugged in. Are they still showing up even though there are none plugged in? E: F: G: and H: drives are all taken by "USB Flash Drive" it seems. Could be unrelated or could have no effect, just thought that was interesting and could potentially throw off the BIOS or something.

    I have two systems, one with an Insyde bios, the other a Pheonix Award bios. When I want to boot from a CD/DVD (for Insyde it's F12 to get to the boot menu) they both behave the same way. If a bootable disk is detected it first says:

    Press any key to boot from CD or DVD . . .

    I then have about 3 seconds to hit any key on my keyboard, if I don't it will ignore the CD and boot from the HDD instead.

    The thing is that the only thing plugged in is the keyboard by USB. The printer is by wifi and that's it. I have speakers but that's not a USB connection.

    when I hit F12 I get a list of things to boot from and when I choose CD ROM it just boots into Windows.

    That does sound like the CD you made isn't bootable. You said earlier you burned the files to a CD. Did you just copy them from a bootable USB? That isn't sufficient to make the CD bootable.

    Windows 10 can make a bootable recovery CD for you. Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Back up and Restore (Windows 7). Click the item on the left that says 'Create a system repair disk' and use a CD-R. That will be bootable.

    I made a WinPE bootable disk using Todo backup software.

    This method worked using a USB flash drive
