You might need to enter BIOS to change boot order so that cd is
first.

When you boot the cd, after loading some setup files, it will ask
if you want to load SCSI/SATA drivers.
It depends on what kind of hard drive you have, if you have a
sata, you might find, that if you don't press F6 to load drivers, it
will not see the hard disk & so not be able to continue the install.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

Then it should be fine, start the installation. If it recognises the hard drive, then you are googd to go.
