DBAN will not boot

Any ideas why I can not get DBAN to boot up, and erase my hard drive? I have tried it with CD and USB. My system recovery discs boot in the same drive. I reboot with the DBAN disc in the same drive; and it goes right into Windows. I have tried every Bios boot order available, and tried a USB flash. Made CD ROM my primary boot drive. Made the hard drive with flash, primary boot. Seems if system discs will boot, I am booting the drive ok? Am I missing something. It is not a perfect set-up because I am using the DVD Rom to boot, in place of a dead CD drive. Even if this were the problem it seems I could boot with USB? I downloaded DBAN direct from the C-net sight direct to drive, and tried next older version from the DBAN sight. Still boot right past into Windows, every time. My system is about 10 years old, so I was considering something to do with the version of DBAN, or something on my computer it needs to run? Does not seem like it. Any ideas? Thanks!
