    How to boot Windows 8 64 bit from Repair Disc

    My pc is a hp pavilion 64 bit desktop computer model # P6- 2220t it is 5 months old. It originally came with windows 7 then I upgraded to windows 8. I went ahead and used windows 8 to create an image of my hard disc and store it on a usb external hard drive I also made a repair disc. Everything went well the pc backed up on scheduled and doing well in backing up. My big problem is this I tried to boot from the repair disc but it won't I looked at the bios but it is different from the type of bios that I am familiar with can anyone tell me how to solve this problem. I would be very grateful.
    ps: I tried hp but they were not able to help me.

    Do you have a UEFI BIOS or a Legacy BIOS?

    Boot the DVD/CD for the One Time Boot Menu, check your manual for the F? key
