    Does not seem like a bootable DVD. Did you use imgburn? You cannot just copy ISO to DVD.

    It is unquestionably a bootable DVD, because (as I said) it boots into Ubuntu perfectly on another PC. I did use imgburn, and before that checked the MD5 hash.

    Hi Asolepius, I was going to say try flashing an updated BIOS or if you've got the latest flash it again incase there's a gremlin in there. Also you could try resetting the BIOS to defaults and see if that makes a difference. At least you can rule out the disc now.

    OK, I have installed Ubuntu now. I had to swap the DVD drive as it was faulty. I still can't understand why neither USB nor the CD/DVD appears in the boot priority. So I never could install from the USB. But all's well that ends well.
