GIGABYTE 970A-UD3 wont boot from disc
I have a Gigabyte 970A-UD3 that refuses to Boot from Disc. Trying to run Memtest (before it was Windows 7 disc, had to install OS from inside OS) and the darn thing wont boot up the disc or give me the option to press any key to boot from disc. Even hit F12 in order to select boot and it goes straight to loading OS even if I select from Disc. I can pop any disc into the DVD drive, no issue. I have the BIOS set to boot from disc first, SSD second. Kind of at a loss, trying to solve some other computer issues, but am blocked by this.

If this is an EFI BIOS there are special steps to create and boot the installer: UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums
If other disks boot then you've probably got a bad burn or ISO, unless it does indeed boot on another PC and cue up install or repair. Download another and burn to disk using ImgBurn at 4x speed.
Try resetting BIOS to defaults: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS.
Set HD first to boot then trigger disk to boot using one time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first screen.
If this fails write the installer ISO to flash stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive, or to boot memtest from flash use Hiren's BootCD From USB Flash Drive (Pen Drive) » www.hiren.info
To force install Windows 7, wipe the HD with the HD maker's HD diagnostics on Hirens boot stick or disk which should boot itself, which should force installer to boot itself to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
