because its not set to look for CD first. It will look for harddrive first, after it searches it cant move on.

Best way is floppy>cd>hdd

Primary boot device should be the cd rom then save in bios and exit and it should restat with
press any key to boot from cd making sure the disk is in of course and the disks must be bootable disks .iso
