Make sure you have the bios set to start up by the CD instead of Hard drive. When restarting the computer press the Escape key ( to change the startup order for that one time ) or F10 key to change the bios settings for startup order for every time.

You might find that you need to use the iBoot "Legacy version" like mine does.
