No go. I have changed the CD/DVD drive which was #3, priority #1 in the BIOS boot order. The cd still does not boot. Frustrating. I really do appreciate the help. Have any more suggestions or places I can go to research. I am all out of options as I have now, 4 hours of googling around. Fun, fun, fun....
