For a Windows 10 system, you can use the built-in image burner. Put a writable DVD into the DVD burner. Right-click the elementary OS image and select Burn disc image.

Side note: I also had a PC with a BIOS that did not allow booting from a USB. I downloaded PLOP boot manager, burned it to disc, booted from it, and was then able to access the the USB drive to boot from it. https://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager/download.html
