You need to be able to get access to the BIOS first so you can boot off of CD.

And it has nothing to do with Windows; I'm running WIndows 8 on my laptop just fine.

new UEFI BIOS, also know as an EFI BIOS, which is required for hard disk drives that have a storage capacity greater than 2.19GB.

If the non-working drive was hibernated rather than just turned off, that will sometimes tell the BIOS to sort of "disable" entry into the BIOS from the F* keys. Hence why you need to reset the BIOS by removing the main battery and removing the BIOS battery.

Are you sure you waited long enough for the BIOS to reset? It took me a couple tries to get mine. You need to remove the main battery, and then somewhere (hopefully) is a connector to remove the CMOS battery.

Try doing it with the HDD out.

The HDD has nothing to do with the BIOS. Even if there was no HDD, you can still access the BIOS.
