to boot from the Cd you need to enter bios to change the way the machine boots. by default most pc s use the hard drive as the first boot device
as the machine boots pay attention to the first logo screen to see how to enter setup
tap the correct key and use the arrow keys to move the highlight to the correct item in this case boot sequence and change it to make the CD the first boot device and try again
after its done with the CD remove it and then reboot and it should be all ready to go

what brand of pc is this
if its a hp press F11 at boot to get to the recovery partition to reload windows and you are given 2 choices either destructive which i assume you dont want since this formats the drive or non destructive which will reload windows without messing with anything on the pc

on a dell press F11 and crtl and it will go tothe recovery partition assuming there is one on the pc
