Changing bios/uefi on hp pavillion

Can't get my hp pavilion g7 notebook to boot from a cd. I tried changing bios settings, boot order etc and still no luck. Help.

Try tapping the Esc key immediately after power on. From the menu choose F9 for Boot options ,then use the arrow key to move down & select the CD/DVD drive as boot choice.Tap Enter key.

Enter BIOS and see if Secure Boot is enabled. If it is, disable it. Also enable Legacy Boot.

Did all that too. Even remade the cd and USB flash drive.
