    I have an HP Pavilion 23 All in one desktop running Windows 8.1.

    Something has happened to the system and I need to reinstall Windows.

    How do I change the boot sequence so that I can boot from a dvd???

    Restart your computer and press the F10 key to enter the BIOS.
    Select the Advanced tab using the right/left arrow keys.


    Use the up/down arrow keys to change boot order to CD/DVD
    Press the F10 key to save your selection.

    Are you sure that you need to reinstall Windows from the DVD..?

    Have you tried other options such as: -

    1. System Restore
    2. sfc /scannow
    3. W8.1 system recovery options
