    Hi Tohru1529. Welcome to the TenForums @Tohru1529

    Are you referencing the Aspire E5-575G listed in your specs.

    According to manual you enter BIOS using F2 and set the boot order there. Page 38

    The computer manufacturer is ACER.

    There seems to be a debate if Norton works on Windows 10 lot of users on their forums saying it doesnt work. Why are you booting a dvd not running it in windows?

    In the Boot tab, use your arrow key on the keyboard and highlight Secure Boot and press enter. If it is enabled, using your Enter and Arrow keys Disable it or change it to Setup Mode.
    If you have the bootable CD in the CD drive, under the boot tab, choose ATAPI CD rom, Move this to First Boot Device, Press F10 to Save and Exit. If using a USB Bootable Flash drive, select USB Hard Drive, Save and Exit. Or you can press F12 and it will show the Bootable devices now.
