Windows 7: These UEFIs (ASUS A68HM)

These UEFIs (ASUS A68HM)

Hello,

Machine won't boot from CD.

The Boot Menu (from F2 and F8) (Asus A68HM)

UEFI P4: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NSD0 (Highlighted)
P2: Toshiba DT01 ACA1000 (953969MB)
P3: Toshiba DT01 - ditto -
Samsung Flash Drive (122368 MB)
Generic Storage Device
Generic Storage Device

UEFI P4 must be the DVD writer; P2 & P3 the two HDDs; a flash drive and I know not what the storage
devices are.

Put bootable disc in DVD writer and restart: " Starting Windows .... " The first entry in the boot
menu is ignored.

I must be doing something wrong. It won't work with any bootable CD I have. The DVD writer works normally in Windows.

Disable secure boot in the Bios.

Disconnect any other drives before installing windows.

Remove that usb stick.

As AddRam advised, you must disconnect any other drives before installing windows.
On BIOS, disable secure boot and fast boot.
Select as fist boot option the HDD. To boot from the DVD, use the Boot Menu (from F2 and F8).
Select the win 7 DVD = UEFI P4
Go to install - Advanced - Delete all partitions - Create new
It will create
- UEFI - 100M - Fat32
- MS reserved - 120M - RAW
- Big NTFS

Install on the big NTFS

It's not practical to disconnect the second 1TB NTFS - internal.

I'd prefer it always to look at the DVD first and if no bootable disc there to default to the first HDD. I do this with other machines which don't have UEFIs. Is this possible?

I'm not reinstalling Windows as such - I just want it to boot from DVD should the need arise to access saved images on the second HDD or on a plug and play HDD if I should ever lose access to Windows on C:
