Go into BIOS. Look for BOOT ORDER. Put the CD above the disk drive.

Your manual will tell you how to get into BIOS, typically hold a key during power on.

Some corporations make it hard to book from USB or DVD to cut out an attack vector. Try hitting F12 before windows starts to see if you can get a boot menu.
