I am trying to install Windows 7 from a DVD to an HP 19-2113w All-in-One with Windows 8.1 as the factory install.
I have entered the BIOS, turned off Secure Boot, restarted, and entered the code to confirm that I want to disable Secure Boot.
Upon restarting and going back into the BIOS, Secure Boot shows it is "Disabled."
HOWEVER -- when I then go into the boot options and try to enable the legacy boot devices, it gives me a message saying "You must disable Secure Boot before you may configure this option."
As I previously stated -- Secure Boot shows "Disabled" when I check under the security tab. How much more disabled can it get? Am I missing something here? Is there any other way to install Windows 7 from a DVD onto this computer?

Hi there @cztraub,
May the Forums be with you! I understand that you are trying to Disable Secure boot to install from a Windows 7 installation DVD. I am happy to give you a hand with this.
I am not sure why that is happening. Please see HP PCs - Cannot Start Desktop Computer From a Bootable CD or DVD (Windows 8).
Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
