Intel® Desktop Board DH87RL problems

I recently purchased a Intel® Desktop Board DH87RL along with a 4th gen core i3 cpu, kingston 8gb compatible ram, and PSU. The system has a Plextor 128GB SSD drive as the primary hard disk. Since the past 2 days I have having nightmares in enabling configuration of the system to boot up. The board does not recognize external USB dvd drive. Later I also purchased a LG sata internal DVD drive to proceed with the install.

I am unable to change the boot device order from the visual BIOS. The BIOS detects the dvd drive but still does not boot from it. I do not get a list of options to choose boot order in Legacy mode or UEFI mode. I have tried with Only enabled Legacy Mode and only UEFI mode on does not help. Secure boot has been off. I am using the inbuilt gpu with a DVI monitor. Pressing the F10 option during boot does nothing!!!! I keep getting the "no boot media found..." error. The current BIOS is an older version for june last year (will edit with the exact bios string later).

Before the upgrade I had a Intel DG33FB Classic board + core two duo with 6 gb ram and using the same Plextor 128GB SSD drive as the primary hard disk. I was getting boot up speeds under 6 sec. I really had great expectations from this upgrade. I am very very disappointed with my experience. This visual BIOS is more of a pain and gimmick . At least with the old style one could quickly configure and use the system!!! Intel, what can be done to resolve this?

I understand the inconvenience you are experiencing, and besides the most expected suggestion to http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-022312.htm update the BIOS it is usually a good idea to use the bootable devices with the USB 2.0 back panel ports. You may also want to use a different installer media; perhaps the installation disc is no longer working.
