    Shouldn't be an issue. Just hit the Del key to get you into the system bios as your booting. Top line, take it to "boot options" or "startup" (don't quite remember which). Just make sure the cdrom is set as a boot device before your hard drive.

    How do I check my boot device

    Just make sure the cdrom is set as a boot device before your hard drive.

    That really was what I was trying to ask is how do I find out if my system is set to boot up from my cd rom.
