Do you mean it doesn't show on the screen or it doesn't give you the option in the bios.

... enter your bios and alter the booting order sequence to cdrom first

... save on exit of bios ("F12" key to save?)

"the press any key to boot from ... does not appear"

That 'normally' means either the optical drive is not set first in the bios, the disc is not bootable, or the drive is defective.
