I need some more info on bios settings and "hot keys" to get a boot from CD.

At present, I have a Microsoft win10 upgrade/reload disk made from an iso.

I have found how to get into the BIOS settings. It has a somewhat non-standard layout.

I can boot off a flash drive if I use the Uefi mode.

However the microsoft software detects this, and refuses to continue, as it thinks I should be building

a uefi machine-insufficient info to do that. This is a standard-ish MBR setup.


With the cd drive as my boot device, I get a "press any key to boot from cd" message, but the boot doesn't happen. A quick press goes to a windows 10 boot, holding the key gives part of a boot, but not off the disk.

possibly it dislikes the efi \boot\bootx64.efi file ?? , or there is an additional "hotkey" combination??


Has anyone had dealings with the k52f, successfully?

Is there a body of info on these machines? ASUS documentation is a bit "thin", and the machine is out of warranty, so, "pay for advice/info!!!"


* there doesn't seem to be a specific topic for this stuff-Firmware??

Basic detailed manuals for existing PCs?

Editing a boot cd into a more acceptable format?- that is a bit software-ish??

I notice there is a bit of windows-related key-trickery involved in getting into the BIOS in the first place!


What should generally be on a boot disk, and in what order for general application,

or to fulfil expectations of manufacturers such as ASUS??

I can post a listing of the base-level contents of the disk, if that would help?

(if that is the problem)....

Since this is a dreaded  DVD-R, it needs to go on a more editable format disk, or I need

to create an ISO file and re-burn it onto a new disk.

The flash drive is so much better for this kind of thing.

Will a DVD-ram disk or RW type work in the same type of burner drive??
