    Lightbulb Booting from optical drive in Windows 10

    I posted a question about how to do this a while ago, and I finally found out. Go to the update and security settings, select Recovery, and then Advanced Startup. If the HP support people were more knowledgeable about Windows 10, they (and I) could have saved hours on the telephone.

    Start\Power

    Press Shift then click on Restart

    Win10 will restart to the Advanced Startup screen. From memory there is a choice to boot from an optical drive under the Troubleshooting section.
