i did that, and it started to work correctly and then the power went out. now when i try to boot it says no image found. i went a bought new optical drive and same thing. do i have to buy a new windows now?
You should start your own topic and not try to piggy back some one else's but to answer your question i would guess that your bios needs changed to boot from the cd first then on to the hdd second. It keeps trying to boot from the hdd first that has an incomplete install.
