Cant Boot from DVD (Secure Boot Disabled, Legacy Boot on)

Hi, Trying to boot my T550 from a Linux (Zorin) installation DVD. Can read the DVD in windows explorer. - it looks ok Have disabled Secure Boot and switched fro UEFI to legacy. Used f12 to select the DVD drive to boot but all I get is a black screen with 3 symbols. The 1st looks like a ruler, then =, then a stick figure in a circle. Any ideas? Liz

Are you sure the DVD is bootable?  How was it made?  Have you tried booting another machine with it?

Thanks! I can't remember exactly how I burned the ISO to the disk, but I used Linux, and I did NOT look for a specific ISO burner. Trying again with Startup disc creator.

Tried burning the disk several more times, from Linux and from Windows, using different ISO burners. Eventually tried a new batch of media, and this time I can boot from the DVD, Thanks for reminding me to check the simple things!
