    New Tower with no DVD drive bay


    Hi Guys

    Just had a new custom tower built and overlooked the fact there was no DVD/Optical drive bay to fit a DVD drive which is not a major factor as it is one of those items that does not get a lot use, BUT if i need to boot from a rescue disk which i prefer, will a portable USB / DVD drive show up in my boot menu as 1st choice to boot from or is there some trickery involved to do so, as i do not own a USB/DVD drive and will have to purchase one if required.
    The tower case concerned is a Corsair Carbide 275Q Black Mid Tower Case

    Cheers

    :)

    Dvd drive not showing

    Is this the HP 15r014tx in your system specs? If so, try the steps in this thread....
    https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebo...r/td-p/6186456

    It may be that your DVD drive has a hardware failure (as was suggested in that thread).
