Hi - Can anyone help me with booting from a CD.
PC: Compaq CQ2960EA
Bios: AMI v18.104.22.1686
OS: Windows 8 64 bit
I need to boot a linux live cd. Cannot find an option to set CD as first boot device in the BIOS. Have tried turning secure boot off and selecting legacy device as a boot option but it gives the message cannot select without turning secure boot off. I thought I had done it. checked and I had. I think it is a UEFI problem either that or HP have buggerd the BIOS so you cant do it.
Thanks for any help.
I found this for an HP laptop: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01443326
Something similar maybe for a desktop.
