Default Boot device???

I have disabled every boot device in my bios except my hardrive which is the first boot device, but when I start up my computer it says press any key to boot from IDE:CD Drive(says something like that), I don't know why though because I disabled it as a boot device...

why not just ignore it then? If you have a corrupt OS or MBR, then you maybe getting it in order to boot without problems...

make shure if it says "Press any key to Boot from CD...." that a bootable CD is not in the drive
