Boot to the dvd by making sure the dvd drive is booting 1st or 2nd drive and before the hard drive. The cds does it all as you choose full install. The cd will aprtition and format the drive and save your Windows folder ( as Windows Old) and any other folders on the new hard drive.

So do I need to go to bios and select 'boot from cd' or should I just insert the cd into the drive and start it up.

You need to change the boot order where the cd or dvd drive boots before the hard drive.
