    I have an Acer Aspire 5630. I have been unsuccessful in trying to boot from a Live CD. I have searched the internet and even the Acer support site, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to boot from a CD. When I tried to do it, I changed the order of things to boot from in the bios, putting CD first, but the funny thing is that it said usb CD or something like that. Is that not the same thing? I'm having a really hard time trying to figure this out. I would be really grateful to anyone who could help me out.

    Since no one else knows, I'll help you. Go to eSettings Management, click on Boot Options, and you will be shown Boot Sequence. To boot from a CD, move CD-Rom/DVD Drive to the top of the list.
