    Question EUFI and boot order

    I just bought an HP 750xt desktop running Windows 10. Despite setting the boot order to start with the DVD drive using the EUFI settings, the computer wonít boot from the DVD drive. I hear the DVD drive spinning, but the computer boots in the default order (from the SSD).

    I need that boot order for reinstalling Macrium Reflect disk images and for running Microsoft Online virus scan. I just looked at the boot order screen and didnít even see the DVD drive. Iím confused.

    Cheers,

    Will

    Disable Windows 10's fast startup, which is normally a default setting, prior to using a bootable disc.

    Thanks, Clint. It is so easy to forget all these settings after setting them and not even looking at them again.
    Be good, Jean.

    I disabled fast startup, but my DVD drive no longer appears in my boot options. I tried it with a DVD in the drive and with the drive empty. When I tried it with a disk in the drive, I couldn't get to the startup options until I ejected the disk.

    Cheers,

    Will

    Hold down Shift when you click Restart and you will be given options for re-starting your machine, including boot from DVD.

    cheers, Paul
