Hi, I am trying to install a new copy of Windows 7 64bit Professional but cannot get my Z830 to boot from an USB attached DVD drive but am having no success. I have moved USB ODD to the top of the boot priority in the advanced section of the BIOS. I can get it to boot from a USB flash drive no problem but not from a DVD drive. The DVD drive is a LG GE20LU10 and I have successfully used it to boot other laptops and desktop PC's.
If anyone can offer me any advice or suggestions I would be most grateful.

Wow. That is an ODD one. Have you tried all of the available USB ports?
I guess if all else fails you could create a bootable USB Thumb drive large enough to contain the entire DVD contents and convert it over to a Win7 Installaion CD on the USB Thumb drive.
