Help, please.

In a desktop PC with a Gigabyte Motherboard:
Model H110M-H-CF (U3E1)
Chipset Vendor Intel
Chipset Model Skylake
Chipset Revision 07
Southbridge Vendor Intel
Southbridge Model Skylake PCH
Southbridge Revision 31

BIOS:
Brand American Megatrends Inc.
Version F20
Date 11/16/2016

I cannot boot from the DVD (to install Windows 10, replacing Win 7).

Pic 01: Win 10 is an ISO file.


https://www.dropbox.com/s/il3r7haarr...G1441.jpg?dl=0
Pic 02: I've changed the Boot Option #1 to the DVD.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/cry93alqaq...G4616.jpg?dl=0
Pic 03: Some BIOS information, and the Boot sequence.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/kxzcy83n1j...8244B.jpg?dl=0
Pic 04: The BIOS ID is 8A29AG0P.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ga0ly7i8au...G4597.jpg?dl=0
Pic 05: I hit the F12 key.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/mux6wj7dhx...G1590.jpg?dl=0
Pic 06: I clicked on the DVD drive.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/i12rd0sodh...G2690.jpg?dl=0

Regardless, it still just starts the installed Windows 7.

How can I make it boot from the DVD?

Thanks.

Darn. Why does a Picture not appear?
I hit the "insert image", and entered the Dropbox URL.
This has happened before, so I also put the URLs in the text.
What's up?

looks like the image has been burned to disk instead you will need to copy the iso file to a pc or laptop then use imgburn Setup_ImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe <- ImgBurn Downloads | Software - Digital Digest

install the software, open imgburn look for the option burn image to disk after it has finished you test it after it ejects the disk put it back in then windows should load or the dvd icon will change to windows disk icon.

Say, What?!
Yes, Steve, the image Was burned to a DVD.
I think that's how it Must be used. Am I wrong, there?
I first downloaded the file to the HDD on the PC, then burned the ISO file to the DVD.
You're simply saying that I need to use a Different program to do the burning?
HOW is That going to make any difference?

Sorry, but I really don't understand your post.
Maybe if you used some Periods to end a sentence, it would be easier to understand?

The Dropbox url that you entered in the "insert image" dialog is not the actual url for the image. It's just the url for the Dropbox viewing page for viewing that image. To get the actual url for the image, open the Dropbox viewing page for that image (using the links you posted), right-click on the image itself and select "copy image location". This will copy the url to the clipboard for pasting in the "insert image" dialog. The actual url is very long:

https://uc3c7255dc17e1fcb600886ad2c2.previews.dropboxusercontent.com/p/thumb/AAm7yGWHMCBn1gXlqLjdDXHfskqXrKeD_UrlA9zKOSyH17_f3Bb0lRQaXG6grIfmok-m5dYU8IJU2iKrJJmLr3fo1SBJKRwn3rrKm2Cbttohku0hjSMZRHPUrubWFsOwFNoIdMOxVppA9F45sq4s9sIrHmklkU0Ofg_krdGW_adR58UXT-haE4-rRb8wG_iPS5uM3Yc6ZdQPNyJQdlu1lZ3bubOTWKrQFa65V0t4hII-EBQ13FK_ABZrITAa8E17MFvPmliPqcDDAXlHr8W_U4nYoVu2oBTEYrxdxc18nM-QyOHJ_0MhsL1qd_NL-QjrslSCZhlfSmmGFggvM7TtIMVTpWYRC8kH4mdzHYapg7ZkWIQR-XfUFJdPpoK646e1SYVXCsZxkGDrghjZoZcY07uCSlPC3KhoLdjA_JovPbNURIBHmWEkDOXKB-jUxGBfwNIvr6Ev2SkWCW6grWRmyU7K/p.jpeg?fv_content=true&size_mode=5

Use it in the "insert image" dialog to get this (hotlinking):



Compared to the Dropbox viewing page url:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/il3r7haarrwdat5/01IMG1441.jpg?dl=0

Alternatively, you can modify the link by replacing dl=0 with raw=1 as follows;
https://www.dropbox.com/s/il3r7haarrwdat5/01IMG1441.jpg?raw=1

and use that in the insert image dialog to hotlink it to your post. Note this somewhere for your future posts so it doesn't happen again.

Yes, you're wrong. That's not how an iso image is burned. An iso image is an archive that contains the actual files that need to be burned onto optical media. It also contains metadata for the target disc filesystem, for example, boot information that makes the target disc bootable. Think of an iso image as a container for storing files. To access those files, they have to be extracted from the container. What you did is simply burned the container itself to a DVD. This created a simple data disc that has no special characteristics such as being bootable. Burning an iso image transfers ALL THE contents of the iso to the target disc, and that includes the visible contents (files and folders) and invisible contents (filesystem metadata) that give the disc special characteristics.

I agree that @steve32mids instructions could use a better presentation. While I understood what he was communicating across, I too was at pains reading through it! The difference between the burning method described by Steve and yours is that your method results in a disc that contains the iso image file (archive/container) itself, while Steve's method results in a disc that contains the actual files, folders and other invisible characteristics (filesystem metadata) that are stored/contained inside the iso image/archive. You don't need to download and install any other disc burning program to burn the iso image. Windows 7 has a built-in burning feature that will do this for you the right way. Simply right-click the Windows 10 ISO image file and select Burn disc image. The process is illustrated here https://www.howtogeek.com/80094/how-...-in-windows-7/ and here https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-burn...-a-dvd-2626156

Why not use MCT from MS. It will create a "bootable" DVD or USB to install Windows 10.

Mr. Stance, I normally use xplorer2 from Zabkat, instead of MS Explorer.
In xplorer2, I right-clicked the ISO file, and clicked "Burn disc image".
And you're correct: that simply Copied the ISO file to the DVD.

Just FYI, that ISO file is "read-only", and regardless of how I try to
change that file attribute, it cannot be done. The DVD is now useless.
Cannot delete the file, cannot format the DVD. Ah, well. Minor detail.

Using MS Explorer instead, the same "Burn disc image" command burned
the Contents of the ISO file, like you described. All is well, now.
Thanks very much for the very Detailed explanations that you gave
on Both issues, the "showing pictures" and the "boot from DVD".

BassFisher, I don't know what MCT is, but that link that you provided is
the same URL at which I had clicked "Download tool now".

Regardless, I now have a DVD with the ISO contents, and I expect that it will work.

Thanks, people.

After you download the tool....did you go through the process of making the "bootable" DVD or USB? Or did you just save the ISO?

Personally, I use Rufus to make bootable install media on USB. It save's money and I don't have to waste DVD's.

At least you have it now.

BassFisher, I downloaded the ISO to the HDDm then "burned" the file to a DVD.
Apparentluy, I only Copied the file, so that wouldn't work.
And that DVD is now worthless. Darn.
With advice from Stance, I Burned the ISO Contents to another DVD, and It Worked!
I'm now on Win 10 ! Cool!

One more question, Stance: regarding that "insert image" thing,
OK, that URL that I had originally used was only the Viewing Page.
But How did you arrive at the "replace dl=0 with raw=1" ?
Where did that come from? How did you know that?
This is just a test:


Again, Many Thanks, people.

Teamwork good job folks!!!!I think the words missing here Stan finally said somewhere is you must burn the iso to a "bootable dvd" disk. I hope you realize the same "download tool now" would eliminate the extra step because that download use to a Usb flash drive would then be bootable after the download eliminating the need to do anything else to boot to the flash drive..

Googled "hotlinking dropbox" and found a discussion about it in the Dropbox forums.
