    I have a USB for my other computers, but my desktop just will not boot from it, so I burned a DVD, booted from it and clean installed, no problems. Yes, you do have to press a key to boot from DVD when it asks.

    Click on skip when asked for a product key (several times).

    using down arrow choose CDROM and hit enter you should be in business.
    That's what he did and it did not work. Come to think of it, after select the CD, you might also need to tap on any key in order to boot from the CD. Sometimes the BIOS flash a quick message "Press Any Key to boot from CD/DVD"

    I think ramram55 was trying to get OP to change first boot device to CDROM in the BIOS which, based on BIOS screen image posted, they hadn't done at this point. With the posted BIOS screen, it seems it would just continue to boot from HDD without any option presented.

    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.

    Not trying to steal your thread here gbu , just share my experience.
    I have a very similar problem trying to do a clean install booting from DVD or USB:
    Windows 10 x86, boots from DVD or USB without probs,
    Windows 10 x64, from DVD loads the blue window and then nothing more. Have to switch off/on to get out of it. From USB - nothing, just blank, some HD activity and then nothing, ctrl/Alt/Del restarts

    I understand your point given the meaning of "Boot Menu" nowadays, i.e., a direct option to immediately boot from the selected device. My alternative interpretation is that this "Boot Menu" is simply an offered change in the boot order which the user changes, saves to the BIOS, and, upon reboot, goes into effect. In that case, changing the "Boot First" device to CDROM would first attempt boot from that and, if user presses any key to boot from CD, it boots from the CD and never even looks at the HDD. He doesn't WANT it to look at the HDD in this case.

    My laptop offers both scenarios, depending on whether I'm using UEFI or Legacy boot. Granted, I don't know anything about the DualBIOS on that Gigabyte motherboard.

    That is the whole point. When select from boot Menu, the BIOS completely ignores the boot order and will boot straight from the device you selected. The boot order in the BIOS does not change.

    In the case of a one time boot device selection, I agree. However, there are still BIOSes out there where you can save the first boot device order in any fashion you specify, and they stick, boot after boot. In two specific examples at home, I have changed boot order from HDD first to DVD first and, if it finds a DVD in the drive, it will offer to boot from it by pressing any key. If no DVD is in the drive, it moves on to the HDD. I think this is what OP is looking for in this case. I'm only trying to relate to OP's needs and interpret the BIOS screen shot they posted here.

    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?
