You need to boot with the disk in the drive.

make sure CD drive is set as first boot device in the BIOS.

Thanks Fruit Bat, but I have no idea what you are talking about or how to do it!!!! I am a complete amateur at this....sorry for the problem.

Ruby,you may need to enter the bios and change the boot order from HDD as first boot device to CD as the first boot device and f10 to save and exit.
Place the restore disc in the cd drive and restart the computer.
