Unhappy CD ROM will not boot up VISTA repair CD to fix winload.exe is missing or corrupt

I'm upgrading a friend's Sony Vaio notebook (VGN-FW139W) and can't get the CD to boot up before the OS loads from the Hard Drive.
I went into BIOS and made sure CD is set to the 1st one. Also tried it USB boot, then CD Rom, then Hard Drive.
Never wants to boot from the CD rom. Any clues.

I needed to fix the winload.exe error.
I've used Hiren's Bootable Flash Drive tool but can't find a way to launch the CD rom to access Vista Repair.

Try another bootable dvd, to see if its the disk, or system.

Where did you get the CD from? Did you get it from NeoSmart? If so did you make sure to burn the ISO as is and not unzip it with WinRar or WinZip? The file is the complete disk and should just be burned as is. There are instructions on how to do it using ImgBurn.
