Question [Q] Missing Press any key to boot from cd or dvd

Hi!

I was about to install windows 8 64 bit but when the installation hung up I realized that the dvd was corrupt. So I tried turning off my PC, but when that didn't work i turned it of manually. But when I tried again the "press any key to boot from cd or dvd" was missing. After that I tried to boot from BIOS with a windows 7 dvd, but that didn't work either. So now I installed windows 7 through a USB. And when the installation was finished I found out that the CD drive worked fine, I cud use it like nothing was wrong. so it doesn't work on BOOT but in windows it does

So my question is how do I fix this? How do to get the "Press any key to boot from cd or dvd" to come back?

Is this somting That I Can`t fix, are there anny thing wrong with the mother board?

You can press F11 while starting up to choose boot device...........
And then DVD drive

Go into your BIOS settings and disable all of your boot devices except your CD/DVD drive... should be able to force boot to CD/DVD?

Are U installing on PC or a Tablet, if PC then post it specs.
if Tablet then which one.
Also Search/Google for windows development preview forum and find out ur answer.
Ur problem may be due to corrupt ISO or DVD as i also faced this problem, so downloaded the ISO again and problem solved.
Try running it in Virtual Machine for its integrity if u can.

instead of booting it from the DVD, why dont you just try it from the Flash Drive?
