Windows 7: Boot Order Engagement

4 Weeks Ago   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Boot Order Engagement

I need to run Acronis to do a TIB on the hard drive. This is a HP 8100 SFF Elite.
I can F9 to access the boot order. When I select and then click on the ATAPI CD/DVD DRIVE nothing happens.
I can can on sata and windows then boots.
I go into setup and arrange the boot order ATAPI first, then USB, then Hard Drive. When the system boots instead of engaging DVD the boot simply engages Windows 10.
I then added an external USB DVD drive in an attempt to bypass the internal boot hardware.
Again the system boots into Windows. And after repeated changes boot order and so forth I am unable to access the DVD Drive be it internal be it USB DVD external.
Thus if I could press 'enter' during F9 encounter when selecting the ATAPI I would be able to launch Acronis.
What may be a possible remedy?

UEFI hard drive boot order and boot menu are completely ignored
I have a bit of a puzzle, and I don't know whether to blame the motherboard maker, Microsoft, or -- this is a really distant third choice, obviously -- myself. (That being said, UEFIs and GPT drives are new to me, so that distant third choice might not be as distant as I'd hoped.) I recently set...

Choosing which OS to boot by changing BIOS boot order
