Hi. Experiencing difficulty trying to dual boot. Downloaded the ISO, burned to disc, verified disc. Using the prompt in Windows 10 to boot from disk to install, and when system boots up, I hear the DVD drive spinning up for about 45 seconds, then nothing happens. After about 3 minutes, Windows starts up. Here's what computer I'm running;
Windows 10 Enterprise
Version 1607. OS build 14393.1198
AMD A6-6310 with Radeon R4 processor 1.80 Thx. 6GB RAM, 64 bit.

Now I have tried to gain access to the boot menus with the F2 key upon startup, but was unable to make that work, which is why I had to use the advanced startup options under computer settings.

What am I missing?
Should I put the ISO on a USB drive instead?

I don't have any experience with the boot from disk to install option. Why can't you get in with F2? Is it password protected or is it something else? Perhaps it is a different key combo to bring up the BIOS?

It sounds to me like you need to set the DVD drive as the first boot option in BIOS, I'd put my efforts into getting that to work from a boot. Any information about why this isn't working would help troubleshoot this.
