Hi sfeddersen1 and :)
You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if it is provide the model name or series number (not serial) these details will enable others to better assist you.
Have you changed the boot sequence in the BIOS to 1: CD/DVD drive and 2: The HDD?
The method for "how to" will vary depending on the brand of BIOS but check @ http://www.hiren.inf...bios-boot-cdrom for the relative method you require.

NB: I am in no way suggesting that you use any other product or service at the link.
