Thank you Linda for that additional info.
So you mentioned your Drive is not working.. is it not opening.. ?
You're trying to change the boot menu to boot from a CD drive.. correct if that is not working it generally is a hardware related problem on this model though it seems. They do offer 50-75% off units that are even out of warranty to be fixed. 1-***-***-****, (M-F 8am to 6pm CST).
If that isn't a viable solution for you, the only other option would be to get a cheap external usb CD drive and do it that way, changing the boot order to the new disc drive.
Please provide a positive rating, if you need more assistance please ask. Glad I could be of assistance and God Bless,
