How to add another Boot Option to Asus x550z?


Hey Everyone ... I just got my Asus x550z and for the life of me I cannot add another "Boot Option". the bios only recognizes the hard drive and I need to add the DVD drive.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Jim

Maybe add another boot option menu will show cd drive?
After disabling secure boot?
If enable legacy boot is in there.
Enable it also.
CSM is important also. Enable it.

Edit: Forgot my manners. Howdy and Welcome.
