    Trouble Booting From Optical Drive

    Hi Folks:

    I use StorageCraft's ShadowProtect to backup and recover my systems.

    When I boot from their recovery CD the laptop displays:

    Press any key to boot from CD or DVD......

    The periods are printed at about 1 per second, presumably to give the user time to respond.

    I hit the <Enter> key but nothing happens. The Win 8.1 startup screen pops up for a normal system start, ignoring the CD.

    How do I boot from the CD?

    Thanks
    Larry

    You can enter BIOS and configure the boot order. Put CD drive first. ( Or before the hard drive )

    To enter BIOS, press F2 at startup. ( I think )
