Default Just upgraded my mobo but not sure what to do after computer is on

Well, I just upgraded my mobo, put it in a new computer tower that is bigger than my old one. I turned my computer on, the mobo's logo comes up then error recovery black screen window comes up... I have my vista cd in the cd drive the it doesn't seem that the new mobo is picking it up?? I can go in the bios set up, but i didnt really find anything relevant that would aid the installation... So, I'm lost right now, lol, help me. :P

Have you set up your dvd drive to be before the hard drive in boot priority in bios?

Is your dvd drive recognized in bios?
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
