Hi:

 

I have the HP 8200 Elite CMT and in my PC's boot options menu, there is a DVD to boot from, but it won't boot from that.

 

I have to select the device right below that (which is SATA 2), that gets the DVD to boot.

 

I don't know if your PC's boot options menu looks similar.

Unfortunately, I don't have any other ideas for you to try.

 

Under the Legacy boot sources, that is where I select the SATA 2 device right below the DVD drive, and my Windows installation media DVD boots right up.
