Bad optical drive or dirty lens or bios don't recognize the optical drive or boot order isn't correct.

Agree with previous poster - "bootmgr is missing" proves that the PC is trying to boot from the hard drive, not from CD.

You need to go into BIOS setup and set "CD-ROM" as the first boot device, then make sure you "Save & Exit" (F10) when exiting the BIOS setup
