go to bios and change it to boot from the dvd drive and it should work
my dell (after changing the bios as above) has a prompt screen saying to hit a key to boot from disk. So make sure you hit a key before you do - you have like 20 secs to do it... Then follow instructions.
press f8 on start up and repair options and go from there to restore the original dell factory image of vista!
