You have to set it to boot from CD. Go into your bios and choose the CD/DVD drive your launching it from and make sure thats your first boot. When it says hit any key to boot from CD hit a key and format and install windows. It should be f8 or delete to get into your bios.

you can use the same cd key on the same computer loads of times. its just if you switch pc's there will be a problem.
f8, delete, f10, f12 are the common bios keys from what i have seen. my laptop also has a boot menu if i press f12 so i dont need to use the bios, which is useful. just have a look. it should be pretty self explanitory
