Installed windows 8, but when restarting, boots directly to dvd

I am working on a friends computer, and I installed windows 8 for him. I install the os, doing a clean install. when it goes thru the process, it restarts. well, his computer doesnt say press any key to boot from dvd. it boots directly to the disc, making it a loop. when i disable the dvd drive, i get an error saying \windows\system32\winload.exe. So basically, I have no clue what to do. I try to do the system repair, but nothing. it just messes up again. so basically, i cant keep the disc in, bc it goes back to the setup, and i cant take it out, bc the error pops up. can anyone help?
