    "Press any key to boot from CD" does NOT work


    Today I created a recovery disk for EaseUS todo and when I went to check it, I could NOT get it to boot.

    I was able to get to the window that says "Press any key to boot from a CD/DVD". Nothing happens. I even checked it with the DVD that was used to install Windows 10, with the same results.

    Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this issue.

    :)

    Booting without press any key

    @dhievm go ahead and list the model number that gives exact specs/info.


    Does it stop right at the Toshiba logo and sit there? Will it sit forever til you press a key, or will it eventually work after so long?

    Windows installation loops When pressed any key to boot from CD/DVD/USB

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Are you facing this issue while installing Windows 10?

    May I know the make and the model number of the system?



    Method:



    1. I suggest you unplug all the unnecessary hardware during the installation of Windows 10.
    2. Also ensure that the system meets the

      requirement to install Windows 10
      .
    3. If you are facing this issue while installing Windows 10, I suggest you not to hit any key when the system reboots and ask you to
      Press any key to boot from DVD/USB, hitting the key will start the installation process all over again.


    You can go through the video on
    How to Clean Install Windows 10 on a PC Step-by-Step Guide
    and check if this helps you with the issue.



    If you still face the issue, reply to this post with more information.



    Hope it helps.

    "Press any key to boot from CD" does NOT work

    Formating Harddrive

    What you have to do:

    1. Make sure your CD-ROM is set to first boot device, before the hard drive.
    2. Put in the recovery CD and start your comp up.
    3. When it says "Press any key to boot from disk" press a key.
    4. Follow the instructions. Im going to format a comp sometime within the next 2 hours, so i'll post step by step if you need it.

    Im pretty sure the recovery CD's work the same as the Windows CD. It all depends on the actual CD, but generally they do.
