Answers :

On the first screen you are presented with when you boot up, you should see instructions to enter BIOS Setup. You will have to press a key, it might be F2, DEL, or another key. Keep an eye out for those instructions and press it. You should enter a blue colored console. Navigate to Boot Options or Boot Sequence. Using the +/- keys, move your DVD drive to #1 in the boot sequence. Place the DVD in your drive, save and exit. Then when your computer restarts, it will ask you to press any key to boot from the CD.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
