So recently upgraded my computer. It's kind of a hand-me-down so I replaced a lot of things.
Psu-thermaltake 750w (new)
Gpu-asus geforce 1070 (new)
Cpu-Amd 6 core
Ssd-500gb samsung ssd (new)
Motherboard-970a-g46
And my DVD drive is also new, assuming it was broken but having bought a new DVD drive and now having that one not work I'm not so sure.
Problem.
Bios sees DVD drive, and ssd, the cables are new and yes I've tried both sata ports on the motherboard. I've set bios boot order to boot from DVD then ssd. And also the other way around. I've tried booting only the DVD drive. It's a brand new copy of windows 10. And I cannot get it to boot up so I can download the os onto my new ssd. At this point I'm at a loss. Help.

Upon a restart do you enter start up menu and tell the computer to boot from DVD drive where Windows 10 OS disc is installed.

 

F11 will let you enter boot menu

 

Here is a link to your motherboard and manual.

Yes. I've done that. Delete beings me to bios menus where the boot order is. F11 hasn't done anything for me

OK on page 2-3 of the manual it states:

 

"Boot Device Priority Bar"

 

Tick the disc

 

Then press F10 and see if it will boot.

On page 2-6 under "Integrated Peripherals" under "SATA Mode" it is switched to "AHCI".

 

Reset bios to "default settings" and "Integrated Peripherals" under "SATA Mode" it is switched to "AHCI".

 

Press enter to save settings and exit and then restart and press F11 and see if it will boot from the Windows 10 OS DVD.

 

Is the Windows 10 OS DVD a retail copy or one that was created from a Windows 10 upgrade on a different computer.

Can you post your complete specs using the Techguy System Info? http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe. You can't download the ISO to the drive you want to install it on. You have to install it to a different drive and then burn it to a disk. Do you have any other bootable disks like maybe a linux live disk or a rescue disk you can use to test the dvd drive?

Reference 1

 

Reference 2

 

If the optical drive is properly connected and appears properly in the BIOS...and all BIOS/UEFI settings are proper...it does not make sense.  If the drive were brand new...and you had previous problems with then-existing optical drive...it seems possible that your motherboard port is not functioning as it should.
