Re: Installing OS on SSD from HDD

Ok, I keep seeing these instructions and references about doing from the USB or DVD.  I used Dell's recovery program to make my recovery DVDs.  First off it needed 3 DVDs because it was over 11 GB.  Then once I changed the boot sequence to the DVD drive and put in the first DVD all I get is an error stating "No bootable device available"

So what I am doing wrong.  Sucks to have this computer just waiting to go and to be running into problems with what is supposed to be so simple.  Has anyone actually did this off of DVD's?

And why can others get by with an 8GB USB Drive when it needed 11 GB when I created the recovery?
