System won't boot to my internal DVD drive

HP Recommended
Pavilion DV7-6113CL
Windows 7

After receiving an imminent HDD failure warning, I replaced my internal hard drive and have been trying to use the Recovery Media (DVDs) I created to reboot my system. I get the error message "No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key" even though I have chosen Internal CD/DVD ROM as the first boot drive choice. When I go into the Startup Menu at bootup there seems to be a conflict between F9 Boot Device Options and F10 System Configuration-Boot Order. F9 does not give me a CD/DVD ROM choice; only the internal HDD or a USB ext HD or key drive. Under F10 I can change the boot order to show the CD/DVD ROM as the first boot drive choice, but that never shows up under F9.  I am pretty confident my Recovery Media are good. But the system doesn't seem to want recognize any DVD.

 

It will, however, recognize USB devices. Is there a way I can configure the USB ext HD as a boot device?

 

By the way, when I reinstall the old HDD, the system works just fine (except for the warnings). And the DVD drive works fine, too.

It is possible the Recovery Disks are bad. Do you have another machine you could test them on to see if they are bootable? F9 should give you the cd/dvd option no matter what boot order is set in BIOS-If there is bootable media detected.

Yes, the disks are bootable in two other machines.
