Hi,

Think to change the configuration mode in your BIOS.

Follow these steps to do that:

On the Setup of your bios.
Choose the ATA instead of AHCI on the SATA configuration..
then now apply the changes. then insert your cd on the cd rom. make sure you have chosen the cd as your first boot device.

Good Luck!
