I'd be surprised that a PC that fast was built before booting from
CD-ROMs was a supported feature.
What have you done to try and boot from the CD?
Have you gone through the BIOS and looked for boot options? Perhaps a
different CD drive will work better? (Boot drive order, configuring IDE
ports to recognise that a CD is connected to one, etc.)
Have you burnt the disc in a manner that it can be booted from? (Try it
on another PC, you can boot it without upsetting anything on the hard
drive, simply don't start installing.)
