Default Boot Agent

I recently ordered a computer, and after installing windows xp and all the drivers successfully, i was prompted to reboot. When i do this, the computer tries to boot from a cd even though there is none. I changed teh settings in the bios to boot up from the raptor that contains my os, but nothing seems to work. And after tryn to boot from the cd, the boot agent will stall for about 5 mins, then it will say media test failure or something.. Also it says check cables...etc.. I have to keep manually changint the bios settings to run windows.. very annoyin..!! please help
