Gigabyte 970A-UD3 wont boot from disc

January 17, 2013 7:02:44 AM

I have a Gigabyte 970A-UD3 that refuses to Boot from Disc. Trying to run Memtest (before it was Windows 7 disc, had to install OS from inside OS) and the darn thing wont boot up the disc or give me the option to press any key to boot from disc. Even hit F12 in order to select boot and it goes straight to loading OS even if I select from Disc. I can pop any disc into the DVD drive, no issue. I have the BIOS set to boot from disc first, SSD second. Kind of at a loss, trying to solve some other computer issues, but am blocked by this.

Ive been an ASUS fan for years but they ticked me off by RMA sending me back the wrong board I sent in, losing the wrong board after I sent it back trying to get it fixed and sending me back the exact same MOBO I RMA'ed to begin with, NOT FIXED. so decided to try GIGABYTE, not sure if that was a smart move.
