I just bought a shiny new Toshiba Satellite and I have spent hours trying to figure how to make it boot from the CD/DVD ROM drive. I set the ODD at the top (high priority - see screen shot) and no joy. There were some posts that mentioned holding down the "C" key while the system POSTed but no joy here either.
- Windows 8 Home Premium 64bit
- 8GB RAM
- 120GB Kingston SSD
- 750GB HDD (system drive)
What I ultimately want to do is clone my current system drive to the 120GB SSD and use my HDD for VMs. I have an Acronis CD that will do the job if I could get the blasted thing to boot from it. I've tried Windows 7 DVDs, Ubuntu Live CD and a couple of others - nothing works.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
