Go into your BIOS and make sure that the CD/DVD drive is the first on your boot order.

Well go on the BIOS and it should say BOOT around there somewhere and then have a look or on the CD/DVD Drive BIOS which should also be around there somewhere!

It depends on the make and model of your motherboard. Usually, it's delete, F8, F12, or others. There should be a boot order somewhere in your bios (Use your mind to determine where), it may also be called something like, "Boot priority". Make sure that the first member of the list/array of buttons is the CD/DVD drive.

When you are starting Windows, it'll say in one of the corners. Just find it before it goes to the next screen. For how to get to BIOS.
