hi DorianDiaconu,

 

Thanks for Posting!

 

First go inside BIOs by tapping F2 while turning on the computer.

    Then go to the Exit TAB and make sure that the OS Optimized and OS Optimization are selected to Other OS or Disabled.

     Then Go to Boot or startup tab Make sure that secure BOOT is disabled

     and Boot mode and Boot Priority is set to Legacy.

 

Now hit F10 to Save and Exit

 

Insert the CD and Turn the system OFF

 

Now when the computer starts up start hitting F12 (while the system is turning ON)

     You should have a boot selection  select BOOT menu or Select the CD / DVD

   

This should make the CD's load the Installation.

 

Regards

Solid cruver

I have the same problem with the z5170 i just bought. I did what you wrote step by step but it still goes to the same black screen where i'm asked to enter date time and drive C command. Is there any other way to solve this?
