HP Pavilion G7 Won't Boot from CD Drive

Hi, I tried to run a bootable disc from my HP Pavilion G7 laptop.  Even going through F9 to I don't see an option to boot from cd/rom.  In the BIOS the setting is correct for booting from that device as enabled.  Am I doing something wrong?  What do I need to do to be able to run a bootable cd?  I even tried setting the CD/DVD rom drive as the first option in the boot order.

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

Boot up the PC and tap the Esc key at the beginning of the HP welcome screen.

 

See if there is a Legacy Boot Mode from the list of options you are given, and if there is, select that.
