HP Pavilion 500-017c
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to use Killdisk and install win 7 on mp PC.  However, My CD player doesn't show up as a bootable in the BIOS.  I set it to SATA 2 and it still doesn't show up.  My CD player works otherwise.

Hello
first of all I can only advise you to avoid this, at least not before taking certain precautions.
If you can, do the test with another hard drive, it will avoid damaging the whole system for nothing.
Your computer may not work under Windows 7, there are no drivers developed here:

And certainly other constraints!

Otherwise, if not already done, you must create the recovery kit

Attention
A bios update is not without risk!
Be aware that if you are offered to do so, it will be at your own risk, the computer may become unusable, think about it
