Default Won't boot from cd rom

*Sorry I posted this in the hardware section too. More traffic goes through here then there. Delete other if you want*
Just built my new pc today (the one in my sig). I went to install vista and it went fine till about 30% and BSOD. I reset cmos,rebooted and went into bios and put boot priority to sata cdrom. No matter what I do when it says PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD it goes straight to NO BOOTMGR press ctrl,alt,delete to restart. Even then when I do that it won't let me restart it. I've tried everything except for taking all my peripherals out except for my cd/dvd drive. Need help asap so I can start OCing the $hit out of this thing.

thanks,Yea I've tried different cd's already. It might be needing a bios update which I really didn't want to do. Three builds in the last year and this one had to be the one that gave me probs.

I unplugged my hard drive and it went into windows install fine. Once I plug it back in though it'll keep telling NO BOOTMGR. I did however get to format my hard drive. Do you think the HD is faulty?
