ok try this...right after your computer logo dissapears...re-peat hitting the f1 or f2 key to get it to bring up the boot screen..then you should be able to choose boot from CD.

if that don't work do the same only hold down the delete key..see if that works.

Depending on the age of the Computer it might not without Windows have the USB Drivers, in which case it would not see the CD Drive. In the BIOS it might even come up as a USB Device as a Bootup option?
