My Product Number is G0T59AV.
I would like to know how I can boot from a CD and also want to know how I can boot into safe mode. I know that I can get into safe mode from the Win 10 recovery but want to know how in case Win 10 will not boot.

Here is link to HP support document on how to enter safe mode:
To boot from CD you need to change the boot order so that the DVD drive is before the Hard drive. Press ESC when computer starts and there will be the option for boot order. Or enter the Bios by pressing ESC at startup and here there will be the option to change boot order. When booting you will be prompted to press any key to boot from CD.
Hope it helps,

Thanks for the quick response. The solution for getting to safe mode seems to be fine but I have problem with the boot from CD.
When I press the esc to change the boot order, I only get 2 choices - Standard OS and uefi boot. If I try uefi it does not boot. When I go into the BIOS to change the order, it seems to ignore the order and just boots from the OS on the SS hard drive.

Disable secure boot in Bios settings and save changes. Reboot the computer. It is possible that a message will appear about the secure boot change and you might have to insert the code onscreen.
Now reboot the computer and the dvd should appear in the boot order and you can choose the drive. Windows might startup anyway. Press and hold power button to turn off PC and after 10 seconds restart PC and it should now boot from cd. After you have finished booting from disk, reset the Bios settings to default.
Hope it helps,

I disabled the secure boot in the bios and also changed the order of boot so the dvd player was first. I rebooted (go not warning message) and the boot stilloccurred from the Win 10 OS. I then rebooted again and pressed the esc and got to the menu and went to boot menu and still only have the Win OS and EFI as choices.
So the bottom line is I stlll am not able to boot from DVD player.
Any other suggestions?
