do i have to do something in dos mode????

If you're trying to boot to the disc you might need to change the boot preferences in the BIOS, as it will just boot to the hard drive (if It's that way in the preferences)

Go into your BIOS and make sure your machine is set to boot from the CD/DVD drive rather than the hard drive. You could also try pressing F12 during boot which on some machines will give you a boot option screen.

If not you will have to press delete and change the order preferences in the BIOS, can't remember which section It's in, even though i did it last night...
