I assume you want to wipe the drive and have a clean windows install:

You need to either enter the boot menu, or enter the BIOS and set the CD drive as the first boot device.

When you start up, look at the bottom for a keystroke to enter the boot menu. Then restart. Tap the key to enter the boot menu. Insert the restore disc. Then choose the CD drive to boot from.
