    Can't boot from usb dvd


    Hi Roomies @,

    I just upgrade to Win 10 PRO 1511 on my Lenovo laptop and burned a win 10 pro DVD. I would like to do a clean install but I'm not able to find my DVD drive on Bios or boot manager. Can someone please help me? Here are some images .

    Look in General section in BIOS (could be elsewhere). Is your DVD detected as a device? It could have a problem. Switch off your computer, remove power and SATA cable from DVD and leave it for a few minutes. Connect the Cables again and go into BIOS. Can you see it? You can also try using a different power and/or SATA cable, if available.

    If it is a notebook you can try to remove the screw holding it in place, remove it and place it again.

    Hi Spapakons, I have a laptop and my portable DVD writer is been detected and it works just fine. I was able to burn Win 10 on it.
    My problem is that I don't see it on my Bios or Boot Manager and I don't know what to do.
    I did what you said, but still nothing.

    Select "USB CD" from the list and see what happens. How did you burn your DVD, are you sure its bootable?

    If the internal DVD shows in BIOS but not in boot selection, then maybe boot from DVD is disabled in BIOS. Have a closer look. If it doesn't show in BIOS as a device, try to remove it and put it back. A bad connection can cause problems. It may as well need replacement.

    On my laptop, if there is no bootable media in my optical drive, it does not show up in the quick boot menu. It's not listed at all as a boot option.

    Set Boot Mode to 'Legacy Support' in Boot menu, don't forget to change it back afterwards

    I DL from the link here (MS) and burned it with IMGburn. I thought all ISO from MS are bootable!! I did, I was able to select USB CD, ...but still not bootable.
