To boot from a CD you need to set CD/DVD drive as the first boot device in the BIOS Setup.

If hard drive has failed, lowest prices for a new one are online shops.

Before you get too far, I'd ask a friend to make a live cd. Either a windows based like BartsPE or VistaPE or a linux based. Then boot to the cd/dvd and get your data off if you can. Use it to see what the state of the hard drive is also.

Depending on how you made a partition you may be able to undo it.

Hang up and live.
