    Just go in to your BIOS and set it to read the CD drive before it reads the hard drive. Should start right up.

    Make sure he actually has placed the cd in then drive & then reboot.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
