    You mean the boot order in the BIOS? If you want to boot from DVD you need it at the top of the list (likewise if you are trying to boot from USB). Sorry if I'm misunderstanding what you are saying...

    I thought you were asking how my boot order displayed when I tapped F12. When I need macrium for example, I tap F12 and when the selection appears, I use the arrow to select the cd/dvd it is set to. If I ever get into a UEFI I hope it has legacy because it is more secure I guess but hard for the average person.

    Ah, no. In your picture in post #6 you have a folder called Boot - I was wondering what was in it as it is not standard. Perhaps you can delete it.

    Nothing to do with boot order - sorry for the confusion.

    I have that Boot folder too, it's full of language MUIs + memtest and BSD backups. It's a hidden folder normally.

    Boot on desktop


    I found boot on my desktop which too has Macrium.
    I will not remove them but they seem to be for different things. or at least in different places.
    I enabled show hidden folders here but have not done so with the laptop.

    I know I am confusing you with which pc is which pc and I can demonstrate if you wish.

    Btw, if you have any suggestions to correct errors I would appreciate having them pointed out.

    Even if I do not move a folder, how do you do it, copy and paste?

    Lots of ways to copy files and folders. Easiest, open 2 instances of explorer and just drag them from one place to other.
