  • The problem does not seem to be the problem within Windows.

    The part you mentioned, "Select to boot from cd" --> Windows is never load on that part. BIOS takes care of that part until it actually loads the Hard Drive. Try to update the BIOS firmware, from the motherboard's support webpage, and check your CD/DVD Device hardware.
