  1. That's a BIOS message not a setup message. What does it say aside from that? Do you have the DVD drive set as a bootable device in the BIOS (that would be the F2 option).
  2. Best answer
    Depending on your computer you may need to use a PS/2 keyboard to get into your bios (likely if you have an older PC) and select your DVD drive as a boot device above your hard drive. PS/2 keyboards had a round purple connector at the end, rather than a USB connector; if you have replaced your keyboard at some point then try the old one (or an old one with the ps2 connector).
