ASUS Z87 Pro Unable to Install Windows

Hi everyone,

I recently finished my first computer build. I am trying to install the operating system now (Windows 7 Home Premium) but I've hit a brick wall.

Using the fancy looking BIOS, I changed my boot priority so that my blu-ray drive is #1, then I put my Windows 7 installation disc in there and restart my computer. However, when it starts it just goes straight to BIOS.

When I first started my computer up, I was getting a "CPU Fan Error" and the CPU fan was running under 600 RPM in the BIOS. After starting the computer up several times, that error disappears and the RPM stays above 600. I'm not sure if this could have something to do with it?

Here are some of my new build's specs for reference:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Mobo: Asus Z87-PRO ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750B BRONZE 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Asus BC-12B1ST/BLK/B/AS Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer

If anyone can offer some insight I'd appreciate it!

Check and make sure the DVD isn't upside down...Ooops, you already caught that ;)  Did the install go OK rightside up? and don't worry have seen a number of people do the same, just laugh about it ;)

Yep! All went well, but now I've run into another issue... If you could take a look and give me your thoughts I would really appreciate it! I put it in the storage forum since it seems to be a hard drive issue, but I'm not sure if it should have gone in Components.
