I have a new Dell OptiPlex 7020 desktop. It was upgraded to Windows 10 a few weeks ago. I am trying to boot to the DVD reader but can't. I start by pressing the F12 at startup. I get a message at the top right of the screen that says PREPARING FOR ONE TIME BOOTUP, but then everything looks different. I see NO option to boot to a DVD or CD device. Need help please, Mike
Solved! Go to Solution.
Rohe, Thanks for the reply. No, I thought I put the bootable disc in the drive after. Am I supposed to put the bootable disc in the drive first, and then press F12 at startup ?? Thanks, Mike
UPDATE. OK, I put a CD in the Drive and stated up while pushing the F12 button. The same choices came up. UEFI BOOT Windows Boot manager
Bios Flash Update
Intel Management Engine Bios Extension MEBx
Change boot options.
I chose the last one, CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS to see what would happen.
I got two more choices:
UEFI Boot mode, Secure Boot ON
Legacy boot mode, Secure Boot OFF
Should I choose Legacy Boot mode, Secure Boot off ??
OK, I tried again. This time I chose the second option, Legacy Boot Mode, Secure Boot OFF. Then I rebooted the computer. Same choices. I do not see any CD Device or USB device listed to boot to. Totally confused. Mike
RoHe..That was it . That article at Dell that you gave me a link to, gave me the instructions to ADD the CD device to my boot options. Many Many thanks, Mike
