I'm having a very difficult time getting my dvd to boot. I believe it may be because it is configured as an UEFI device. I'll give you the rest of my new computer configuration when you are ready

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your media player? How old is it?

ASUS Brand new

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your media player?

Mainly I have expermented with various BIOS settings and RAIDExpert22 settings.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

My configuration is a Prime x399-a MB, 2 1 TB Samsung 870 EV M.2 ssd's, 2 each 2.0 GB SATA Hard drives set in 2 RAID arrays.Win 10 is installed in a partition on the ssd raid array and boots fine. I am trying to install Win 7 Plus to make this a dual boot machine. The Win 7 Plus install DVD (and other bootable dvd's will run from windows 10. but I want to boot directly from the install DVD. That's enough for now I think. Back to you (and I don't think a video expert is the right one. Maybe a RAIDXpert22 guy would be better?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
