Hello and welcome to the forums,

I think I had a similar issue when I was building a PC for my Dad a while back.

I think you press F8 or something like that for a list of boot options right?
Then it gives you 2 choices UEFI and something else, I found one of the options showed the DVD drive in the list, the other option did not have it.

I am being a bit vague as it was a fair while ago since I did it.

What is the exact model of the motherboard?

Paul.

Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7
Warning you must have the uEFI/BIOS firmware setting in Step Three set.


2) If Using a USB Pendrive on a PC with a uEFI BIOS.

Also you will need to use a USB 2.0 port, as there are no USB 3.0 drivers in Windows 7.

Theog, thank you for pointing that out.

I did not word that right. In my bios I can enable both, I did not mean to disable UEFI.

To recap: If this is a Win8 PC you must disable Secure Boot to install Windows 7.

Then follow the steps here to install to UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums.

You should NOT enable CSM or Legacy BIOS unless you want to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 .]
