    To be clear:

    Your computer will not start without a CD in the drive.

    Is that correct ?

    If so, please set up Bios defaults

    You should see a message on your computer startup that says press "DEL" or " F2" (or another key) to go into BIOS
    Once in your BIOS screen locate setup defaults and exit saving changes.

    Try that
