    It's seeing the DVD as a device to boot from because you are getting that "press any key to boot from CD" message. But it's not actually doing it because the system is set to Legacy and the DVD is set to EFI support. I've asked someone else to take a look.

    If anyone else has any ideas, please post......

    TC, don't know how much help I will be....but, I have always had troubles trying to boot from a re-writable disk. Never have been successful. Is there a reason we can't use a flash drive? I haven't read all 6 pages....

    Augi1, do you have Secure Boot turned on in the BIOS? If so, try turning it off and allowing Legacy Support. I don't know what your BIOS screens look like, sorry.

    He has to look in the BIOS to see if there is Secure Boot, if there is it must be turned off.

    Yes, I use re-writable's all the time even for ISO's.

    I would be happy to check re the Secure Boot. Is there a way to do this without rebooting the computer and entering setup? Can I do it from within Windows?

    Is it worth it/possible to convert to UEFI? Would that be easier?

    Nope! Must be done by looking thru setup. No other way. You can look to see how it's currently set by typing system information in search and looking for it in the list. To change, must be in setup.
