Check your computer's boot options in the BIOS Setup. If it doesn't support booting from a USB device you will have to replace the CD drive.

yes, yo need to check your bios for usb booting option. Or else you can check it by inserting your pendrive in the usb slot and when bios logo appars on your screen just press F12 for some PC/Laptop and F10 for others which will give you the option of boot devices to boot from.
