the new disks are dvd disks see if your drive a dvd drive. in the bios make sure your not putting a efi cd rom as first boot devices. check your disk to see if it a windows os cd. if it still wont post try using a usb stick and microsoft iso to usb tool.

The main things I can think of are:

1) Your boot order isn't correct with the DVD drive first, despite you saying it is.

2) You changed the boot order correctly but the settings didn't save due to a dead CMOS battery (easily checked by making a change, saving it, shutting down and going back into the BIOS).

3) Drive isn't recognizing disc (different drive might work).

4) Problem with the DVD disc.

Troubleshooting:
1) Verify boot order
2) Verify BIOS remembers changes.
3) Try Install disc in different PC (just long enough to verify it's being properly detected)
4) Burn a bootable disc like the ULTIMATEBOOTCD using Imgburn and see if that boots.
