✔ Best Answer
Go into BIOS and set the CD drive ahead of the hard disk. Then start the system with the CD in the drive. Bear in mind that if the operating system is missing it might be due to hard disk failure. After sorting the drive order I would be inclined to run the Windows HD test from here:

I assume that you originally had Win 8.1 on it, if not you might run into problems.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
