Ok for some reason i can't boot from a disk and i will list what i have done so far:

1: Burned ISO to disk
2: Went into setup tried boot from both dvd drives (one is writable/readable other is only readable)

I keep getting "Selected boot device not available"
F1 to retry boot F2 to go to setup

Any help?

✔ Best Answer
Q1. Burned an ISO of what?
Q2. Did you test the burned ISO in another machine to confirm it is bootable?
Q3 Did you press F2 to go into setup, Set CDROM as first boot device, Save and Exit then insert the CD and reboot?
