Bios doesn\'t let me change to DVD boot even when I select it.

I forgot my windows password, so I created an Ophcrack ISI Image DVD. When I try this the bios shows my DVD drive in the list of bootable devices, and I select it, save changes, and exit bios, the computer then tries to boot from the hard drive (not the DVD drive selected) and obviously starts up asking for my windows password which I do not have. WHY won't the bios allow me to change the bootable drive to DVD ??

try a different bootable DVD, it may be that the one you are trying to use is not booting for some reason.
