    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Go into your bios, and set the boot priority to floppy(if applicable), then cd-rom, then hard drive.

    Put your Windows disk into the cd-rom and save and exit bios.

    After your system reboots, you should be asked to press any key to boot from cd.

    Press any key, and follow the onscreen instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Yes, you were trying to boot from the CD when your system was set to boot from your unformatted HD.
