You have to make sure your system is set to "boot to CD" in your bios, if you have a Dell F12 will bring up the boot menu, once the system see's the bootable Windows CD it will say "press any key to boot to CD"

Default Re: reinstall

go thru the tabs using the arrow keys and to get out of a tab press esc key. when you get to the boot priority, put the boot order like this:

1st boot cd-rom drive

2nd boot hhd

3rd boot to hhd if you have a duel boot using two hhds or disable if prefered.

to select the boot order, shuffle them around using the - and + keys.
