Help! Can't boot from CD

  1. I seem to not be able to boot from my CD-ROM drive for some reason. Whenever I have a bootable CD in the drive, and am prompted to press any key to boot from CD, nothing happens and it continues to load Windows. I have the CD-ROM set as the first boot device in the boot sequence.

    Any ideas or help anyone could lend would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
