If you are in the BIOS Setup, use the right arrow key to select the BOOT catagory at the top. You should find the boot priority setting there. Set the priority so the cd-rom is first and the HDD. Let me know what you find there.

Hmmm...

Should boot to the cd set like that. I wonder if there are filters set on the drive. Ha a look at this Microsoft Article...removing filters is discussed under the heading "Hard disk formatted with NTFS file system". Try method 1 and see if there are filters set on the cd-rom.
