Booting to DVD

This should be easy, but I didn't find the answer by searching here.

I want to boot to DBAN on a burned DVD.  I've tried a number of things, but the PC boots straight to W8.  I've disabled Secure Boot and changed the boot sequence to boot from DVD first.  What am I missing?

Try bringing up the boot order menu on startup by hitting F12 repeatedly as soon as you hit the power button. Then select your DVD drive as the one to boot from.  I don't know if that will work better than switching the boot order but it's worth a try.

Yeah.. Tried that. Gave up on DBan and went with KillDisk. Doesn't require a BIOS reboot
