Re: Unable to boot CD.

it is probably in the BIOS settings. first go to bios then look for boot mode change  UEFI to Legacy BIOS... save and exit...

Re: Unable to boot CD.

In Spanish ok.... Good! A todos le ha pasado que quieren iniciar desde el CD (boot from CD-ROM) y no pueden en la portatil ACER ASPIRE E1-531... la solucion es simple:

1.-Entran al BIOS (press F2)

2.-Entran a BOOT

3.-Donde dice Boot Mode: Eligen (Legacy boot) press OK

4.-Luego entran en MAIN

5.-Donde dice F12 Boot Menu: Eligen (Enable) press F10

6.-Ready press F12 y le saldra la opcion para iniciar desde el CD-ROM


Agradezcan si esta informacion le ha sido util...

Re: Unable to boot CD.

Recently had the same problem here at work, the F12 boot menu would only show the Windows boot manager.  We found a BIOS option under the Security tab, "Removable Device boot" was disabled.  Enabling that option provided the other options in the F12 boot menu.
