Hit delete during boot-up to enter your BIOS (or whatever key it happens to be for your mobo). The feature you are looking for is "Boot Order". Make sure that the boot order is CD/DVD, Hard Drive, Floppy, Flash. And be sure that you don't have any system disks in your CD/DVD drive when booting up - otherwise, they'll activate and skip booting to your hard drive.
