2. Save and exit the bios.

3. During the post press F11 and select “UEFI: DVD-ROMxxxxxxxx” to start the installation. Some OS versions include built in drivers.

4. Reboot after OS installation, press F11 again and select “Windows Boot Manager” to load the OS.

It’s better to change the boot sequence in the BIOS if it is not in first boot device select "Windows Boot Manager" as first boot device in the BIOS.
