"went into bios,highlighted boot from cd"
you need to save that setting if you want it to work, all bios are different but mine asks if I want to save the changes. Also when you say "highlighted" does that actually change the setting?

With more moden BIOS', you can normally press "F10" on your keyboard to get the "Exit and Save Settings" dialog, but as rawprawn says, all BIOS' are different
