How to make asus m51vr notebooks boot from cd drive

Hi I have a Asus M51Vr note book I bought from a auction and it is locked. I want to format and load vista on it but it wont boot from the cd drive even after I go in the Bios and set the cd drive to boot first. Is there something I am missing, do asus note books have a over ride key to make the cd drive first? Can someone please help

  1. Have you tried saving the BIOS settings after you've changed the boot order?

    Hi,

    I have encountered the same problem as I'm trying to clean my gf's computer. I've saved the boot order as CD (actually it was originally in this mode) and it still doesn't read the CD. Tried burning two different DVDs, both with my macbook and with ISOburn on PC.

    If you found out how to solve the problem please let me know.
