    Default GA-Z77M-D3H unable to boot from CD/DVD drive

    I cannot get my board to boot from the LG DVD drive. It shows up in the boot list and I can select it for boot via F12. However, the drive light will come on briefly and then it will either boot from my SSD or nothing if no hard drive is connected. BIOS is F13 and I've tired both the Windows 7 DVD and Norton Ghost 15 recovery CD. I believe this used to work but I have no idea what setting might have been changed to cause the problem.

    After you use F12 to select the DVD as boot device, keep hitting the enter key....if you get a blank screen hit reset and go through the process again.
    Don't know if this will work for the Z77 but I see this on my Z87 sometimes.

    During boot, hit the F8 or F9 key several times. The boot will give you the option of what device you want to boot from, choice the CD/DVD drive. Then it will ask if you want to boot from the disk hit any key now..............

    That would be F12 to select boot device....
