    I have selected DVD as the first boot in the Boot Menu but it still just loads back to Windows.
    My Boot Menu just allows that option for the first time after that it switches back to boot from HDD

    Should i go into BIOS and try changing the order there to see if that makes a difference?
    Do that

    Set BIOS to boot first from DVD, the activity lights flicker on the drive for a few seconds then just loads windows.

    Your DVD drive (can't see it listed in your system spec) is it an IDE, SATA or USB drive? Is it listed in your BIOS as a CD/DVD drive?

    This is whats listed in BIOS and Device Manager.

    When i first did the upgrade my DVD drive wasnt showing up so i followed these instructions from MS support to change the registry key (Resolution 5)
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/314060

    It then showed up and has been working (playing dvds etc)

    The OS (Win 7 or upgraded Win10) can see it after the reg fix, question is; can the BIOS identify it correctly. There should be another menu in the BIOS where you can list your hard drives, your CD/DVD drives, etc. Within each list of drives it shall be possible to select the order between the drives (eg. you have two hard drives so you must be able to tell the BIOS which one to boot from)
    Find that menu and look for where and how your BIOS identifies your CD/DVD drive

    It does not matter what order it's in from Boot Menu and that's the whole purpose of Boot Menu, It allows you to temporarily boot from any Device regardless the order of the boot device. The next boot without Boot Menu, it will default back to the boot order in BIOS.
    The idea is to get the dvd boot up and I believe you have to physically install a blank hard drive, then do the boot up. I have try it with success. Just have to keep this going by hook or crook, this is getting so close yet so far, it is frustrating.

    This is not what I'm referring to, this is just the first information page, you can't make any changes here. Anyway, doesn't matter. It's listed so it's there
    Can you disable IDE cahnnel 0 and repeat the experiment. (I suppose channel 1 master is not marked active, you can check that in the disk management tool when you run Windows. Channel 0 master should be marked active or boot)

    This begs the question whether your DVD is a coaster. Any way to check that the DVD is bootable/readable on another machine?

    Not really.. even if the HDD/SDD has an OS on it the system can boot up from a DVD/USB flash drive, I've done it many times with no problem.
