    Unable to boot to disc


    So I was having problems getting to the boot menu of my Lenovo G580 laptop earlier.

    I figured out how to get the boot menu - But my only options are hard drive, LAN v4 and LAN v6 boot - Nothing about a disc. So I went into the BIOS boot priority menu and set disk to #1 - It still booted to my hard drive! Anyone know why?

    Are you booting a DVD with uEFI mode support.

    Like Windows 8 install DVD?

    It's not a repair cd, it's an install Cd.

    There is no install CD, only a DVD as in screenshot above.
