eh, you went in too far, instead of entering Bios, there should be instructions saying temporary boot device.

However, I think if you go under the main menu somewhere, there should be something saying boot device or something like that.

But yeah, it should be under the main menu, prolly not advanced

Or you know... under the boot tab. Change the boot order so that the cd drive has highest priority.

Yeah, you know, that big tab that says BOOT is probably what you're looking for
It will display the boot options/order and you can shuffle them around. Make sure you place CD before Hard Disk and you're gravy.

Then put in your disk and reboot. Look for the message " press anykey to boot from cd.." and your good to go.

You wouldnt get that message if the CD ROM isnt your first boot device. It would just skip over it and go directly to your hard drive.
