    hiya, there should be a setting somewhere in the bios which says first/second/third boot device or boot sequence , you should be able to change the boot sequence to boot from DVD and youll boot up fine from there. Im not 100% sure what its called on your motherboard but it shouldnt be to far from that, once done change it back and alls good good luck m8

    ps and im sure someone here knows exactly what the sequence is ;)

    You can directly boot from dvd without entering bios. F10 key often used for boot menu. You can try other keys, look here

    The location will vary bios to bios, so its nothing we can pin point for you.

    Look inside your motherboard's manual or find a PDF copy online.

    Having an Asus BIOS you should have a menu item that says BOOT, near the bottom should be a boot order...highlight the DVD drive and press PGUP until it is at the top of the list...at least that's how my Asus Z87 Pro bios works.

    You should also refer to the manual for your mainboard as it should have a section dedicated to navigating your bios and where to find things within it.

    Most, if not all, Z87 boards have Fast Boot, and many many others that support secure UEFI booting. That's not an ROG specific setting. You have a specific BIOS for your specific board with some extra monitoring features, but even my Z87 Pro has most of the extra Asus tuning features that yours does. Where the ROG comes in is better build quality, cooling, warranty and sensors/monitoring/control.

    Good luck on your search. I recommend you read up on your manual as suggested previously. If you have a more specific question so we don't tell you something you already know, we need more than what you feel needs changed for a bootable dvd drive as first boot option.

    If you're needing help understanding UEFI bios, fast boot/secure boot and what-not, there are a few settings you can mess with. They should be explained and obvious (if your BIOS provides descriptions of many settings in a details box, my Pro does this so I'm sure your board does too.), if you set to boot to OS Drive only that should be the fastest boot option, but obviously will ignore your boot setup scheme a few tabs down (under the BOOT tab), unless you hit F10 (iirc). Again good luck on your search, google your mainboard and look for BIOS screenshots, read the MANUAL, keep it close by. Come back with more questions and let's see if we can't get ya sorted.
