  1. You need to either hit the one-time boot key, F11, F12, ??? or go into the bios and set the cd-rom as the first boot device. Be sure to press a key when it says so to boot from the cd-rom drive.
  2. did you go inside the bios and set it to boot with cd rom insted of hard drive?
    after that bobs your uncle
