Not sure why when I hold the option key the MBP won't give me the option to boot from the Windows 8.1 CD inside the attached super drive. Any ideas?

Solved my problem by installing windows 8.1 from a usb drive instead of the DVD. Odd that I had to do that since I was able to use the super drive with my MBPr 2013 and I was able to install software on the MBPr 2015 after windows installed.
