First, the Fedora 10 DVD ISO file size should be 3.5 to 3.9GB depending on whether its the 32 or 64-bit OS versions.  So, that bootable DVD is not the complete file.  Besides checking the ISO size, you should also do a checksum on it to check for errors.

IIRC, EFI support was not implemented until Fedora 11.  My Fedora 9 64-bit DVD doesn't have an EFI folder and it boots and installs just fine.  So, don't worry about 10 not having it.

As to why the "other" DVD doesn't boot . . .  Improperly burned?  Bad download?  Bad media?

Why don't you tell us in detail, step by step, what you did, what OS you used to do it, and what software to do it with, when creating the DVD, then maybe what you're doing incorrectly will be apparent.
