You must go into BIOS Setup and change the first boot device to "CD/DVD Drive" instead of Hard Drive which it's set to at the moment.

Alternatively, press the appropriate key to bring up the Boot Menu and choose "CD/DVD Drive", then press <Enter>.

Your Dell manual should explain which keys to press for either of the above methods.

Why are you trying to install Windows 8 on this machine anyways? It wasn't even designed for 7, so I doubt it will have any drivers or support available for 8...

Ok, then you should just press F12 when you see the Dell Screen, then just choose the CD drive from the menu there...
