Booting from CD/DVD on Lenovo IdeaPad Z500

I've recently been trying to boot from a CD/DVD to install windows 8.1, but when i hit the novo button and go to the boot menu i only see the hard drive and a windows manger thing but i dont see the booting from CD/DVD option.

 

Thanks in advanced.

Go to bios and set Boot Mode = Legacy support. Then Save and Exit. See picture below.

Put it back to UEFI and enable SecureBoot.
