It won't let me into it...keeps telling me to put in a disc and hit any key when ready then does nothing

Reset your BIOS to defaults, pull out the motherboard battery for a minute and stick it back in!

So are you trying to boot a windows from a HDD? Select HDD with windows as a first boot device! the rest does not matter.
If you are trying to boot up from CD to install windows? Select optical drive as first device.
