I have been a happy Fedora 22 user, on a dual boot pc with also Windows 10. After a complete crash of windows, I bought a new SSD in order to install Windows 10 on it, while I formatted the old SSD in order to put Fedora 23 on it. Windows 10 now runs fine. I made a bootable DVD with Fedora 23 workstation on it (Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64_23_10), but the pc just does not want to boot from the DVD. And unfortunately I have also formatted the old slow HD where Fedora 22 had been installed. Please help.

Check your bios setup for the boot options. Please be double sure that the first boot is DVD drive. Also be double sure by selecting the boot menu when the system starts up. Here too you should select DVD drive. If this does not work, you should try to make a bootable usb of Fedora by following the instructions from here. After this make necessary changes in the bios settings to enable booting from usb. This should solve your problem.

If your PC is set to use UEFI firmware, you want to make sure that your USB is correctly flashed with the image:
