I am trying to boot a backup program. This has always worked before.
I also tried several other cds just to try including an earlier copy of windows. None worked.
I am Using Win 10 home
The drive is not listed, several others under UEFI, which make no sense to and none under legacy devices.
Will it be ok to permanently enable legacy devices?
I confirm that legacy is enabled and secure boot disabled.
I still cannot see the cd drive. I also confirm that the cd drive is first on the boot list.
I am rapidly going off HP! Why do they make a simple task so complex?
I Never tried it on this computer because when I purchased I upgraded
to Win 10 immediately.
I am tempted to revert to Win 8.1 just to find out!
I can try a different drive as well
The problem was that the bios had not accepted a change to disable secure boot and to enable legacy. Therefore every time I went back into the bios it had not changed.
After which must be 10 times of trying I eventually got a screen with a code to enter to allow the changes. All is ok now.
I am definitely certain I selected the option to save changes and exit BIOS. Though I suppose I cannot have on the evidence.
Many thanks for your advice.
I still think that manufactures make things unnecessarily complex!
