Gooday all. I am not able to get my computer to boot from a disc in either of my drives. I have been to "Set Up" and checked that I have the boot order correct. I have tapped F8 and tried to manually boot from the DD. The biggest issue is that this behaviour is erratic. Meaning that every now and then it cooperates. Yesterday I was able to boot from a G Parted disc and also able to install a linux distro on my second hard drive I decided that I would like to try another distro so went to boot G Parted to reformat and I have not been able to do so. As can be seen from the accompanying Speccy file, it's a fairly old (read ancient) computer and I really don't expect too much from it. But, why will do it one day and not the next. Any help appreciated.
