Default Help!!!

made my first gaming rig,

and now I'm stuck on "reboot and select proper boot device"

i've pressed f12 and selected my blu ray driver but it still l says the same thing
and i've pressed the key and nothing happens, I've also ejected the windows cd and put it back in, it reads it, but same message.

and btw I downloaded windows through the microsoft developers website,

downloaded them as an iso file, and than just clicked and dragged it to a blank DVD cd and burned it on my macbook.

i mean i popped the CD back into my old desktop, it recognizes it as a windows cd, but it says its not compatible, but i think thats because i downloaded the 64 bit version and my old desktop was a 32 bit machine

Did you change the boot priority accordingly?

Just dragging the ISO onto a disk doesn't do anything. You need to "burn the image" with an ISO burner. Not sure how that works on Mac, but prior to windows 7 you would need a program like imgburn to do this.
