Well it could be that the drive is bad, or you need to set the BIOS to read the drive as first boot device. When you press the power button start tapping (most likely) the DEL key to enter Setup. Look for boot order or sequence and change it to the cd drive as first device. If Im not mistaken ME will boot from the cd. If it wont you will need to boot to a floppy, fdisk the drive and repartition and format. Then you will be able to insall the O.S.
