    I pressed f2 to enter BIOS and changed boot to boot to cd
    Do Not Change, leave the Windows Boot Manager as first device.

    Boot the DVD from One Boot Menu in UEFI mode.

    SOLUTION

    Enabling the F12 function:

    1.Power on the system. As soon as the first logo screen appears, immediately press the F2 key, or the DEL key if you have a desktop, to enter the BIOS.
    2.Press the right arrow key to select Main.
    3.Use the arrow keys to navigate to F12 Boot Menu, and press ENTER.
    4.Select Enabled, and press ENTER.
    5.Press the F10 key to save changes and restart the system.

    I would Check the hard drive with the HDD manufacturer's diagnostic tools.
