Samsung Laptop ISO Rebuilding New Hard Drive Windows 8

Old hard drive clicking.
Removed it and put a fresh unformatted drive in.
Boot system with an ISO disk in DVD drive.
System says "Reboot and Select Proper boot Device".
Hitting all the F keys useless because they are brightening the screen and turning up the volume.
Used the FN key, but that is not making the keys act as F2, F6, etc.

So, in essence, I cannot get to the BIOS setting to change the boot order so I can run the DVD.

Any assistance would be amazing.

Sorry....Samsung NP350V5C laptop.  Again, Simply can't press the right keys to get to BIOS because they are acting like Brightness up/down, etc....even when using FN.

But the DVD is not the primary boot device in the sequence, the HD is.

If you put the old Hdd back in can you access it? There are some settings in Win 8.. Is Windows 8 the OS?

Here is the microsoft article on disabling secure boot. If it is able to be booted to then you can from Windows, hold the Shift key while selecting Restart. Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options: UEFI Firmware Settings find the secure boot options and change the setting.

till you disable the secure boot it will not let you go to CD/USB. So first of all disable it.

the new uefi bios boots so fast - in much less than a second, that it's difficult to get into it.
i suggest to try continuously - with the proper key.
i can't tell you which one, since you did not mention the laptop model

How did you burn the ISO to the DVD? An ISO is an image file, so you can't just copy the ISO file to a DVD and burn it, you have to use a "burn disc image" option in the burning software.

Have you tried booting the DVD on another computer to make sure it works?

According to Samsung's site, F2 is the option to get into BIOS on the NP350V5C laptop:
