Windows 10: How to create a UEFI bootable CD or DVD
I am working for the next 3 days so will not get back to this until Thursday.
Thanks for your input, I will work on it and get back to you.
Does not work that way. DVD is not bootable either in UEFI mode or in Legacy BIOS mode.

There is no special procedure as far as optical media goes. It's not legacy or UEFI, its both. Special procedures to make UEFI boot media only applies to thumb drives. Any software that can burn a disk from an image file should do.
The boot menu is used to choose an item to boot from, so you don`t have to go into the Bios to make changes. Watch the screen when you first turn on the PC, it will show you which key to push to bring up the boot menu, and from there you would choose UEFI DVD, but you said your install DVD is not showing up in the boot menu.
If your dvd is not bootable then it was not prepared properly. Although you`ve said the install DVD`s you have boot on other PC`s
If you have downloaded a fresh Windows 7 iso file, you have to burn it to dvd, use this simple program, burned at the SLOWEST possible speed.
At least that way you`ll have a brand new install dvd to work with, and if it still won`t show up, then there just has to be some setting in the bios we are missing.

if this works, it seems that it only takes care of OS Install disks, I have many other boot disk requirements, Kasp 10, Hirem boot disk and others.
I might be wrong, because it's been a long time, but I believe that in order for a DVD to be bootable in legacy BIOS mode it has to have a special boot sector on it that does not get there when you just copy files to the DVD. You have to burn the actual image from the ISO file, not just the files and folders in the ISO file. Again, I could be wrong.
Even if I am wrong, I don't really see much advantage to mounting the ISO file and then copying all the files and folders to the DVD instead of just right clicking on the ISO file and selecting the burn image option (or using a simple image burning program like IMGBurn).
I apologise for giving the impression that I only wanted to boot to OS Install disks, I have four PC's in the house but only one has UEFI and that has W10 installed already, I need to boot to other disks, I have about 7 ISO's that I need UEFI bootable disks for.
Also I have no manual for the PC with the UEFI, only a quick start guide and the "help line" people know nothing about the hardware or the software, when I asked for help setting up the boot sequence properly because Boot to DVD first was not working they asked my why I wanted to boot to DVD I told them, as an example, my backup software worked from a bootable DVD, so they sent me details on how to backup the PC which by the way was useless, it only backed up the Users folder.
Also, I do not know for sure how to get to the "boot menu", I have tried all the suggested ones, Esc, F2, F8, F11, and all the other F keys,
the F11 does take me to a menu that looks like the boot menu but the only option is the "Windows MBR" startup.
Also, I need this for DVD's not USB keys, a DVD costs 50c and a USB costs and least $15.00
I hope that clarifies things

Make your bootable install disks the way you normally did in the past. Burn the disk from the image file. That's it. If your trying to boot from something other than Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, turn secure boot off, otherwise leave it on.
F11 is the right key. The Windows MBR is the only boot option being found.
Does anyone know how this software can be configured to boot from usb on uefi/gpt.
I formatted usb using rufus on the relevant mode then dragged over the contents of another usb where it does work on bios/mbr set up.
But when booting...
