    You have to go into the BIOS and change the boot order so the CD-ROM drive is first.

    Depending on your System Bios you will need to hit a key (Generally the Del key) during the boot process.

    You will notice the Boot Proccess will "Hang" for about 10-15 Seconds.You should see a line of type saying Press the DEL key to enter Bios(Setup)
    Generally on the first BIOS Screen you will notice the "Boot Order"
    Change the first boot to CD
