You did change the bios to boot from the CD first?

Are you sure you have a DVD drive? Are you sure the HDD is properly attached? Does the message on the screen say "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..."?

You need to put the DVD in the drive and then power up the computer while it is in there - is that what you are doing? Also see response #1.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
