Get the DVD into the drive.
Hold down the Option key at startup and wait as it slowly draws an Icon for each bootable Volume. If you did not get the DVD into the drive earlier, when it is done with drawing all Icons, the Eject key becomes "live" and can be used to open the drawer on a tray-loader drive.
Select Install macOS X )the name of the DVD and press the arrow under it to proceed.
Answer only the "what language" question and wait a quarter minute for the MenuBar to be drawn.
Choose Disk Utility off the Utilities menu.
