If you are unable to boot from your CD ROM drive, you can try Smart Boot Manager at http://btmgr.webframe.org/.

One of my older machines cannot boot from the CD ROM, however this software allows you to select the CD Rom drive and it worked great for me.

Yes, but I don't know if it's old BIOS, old cd-rom, or what, but it will not boot from CD.
