HP Pavilion 500-017c does not dislpay the CD Player as a boot option in the bios

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.
