Did you try my suggestion setting CD-ROM as the first boot device and then the computer should cycle throug all CD & DVD drives trying to find a bootable CD/DVD disk.

Do you have another computer to try the disk on so you can isolate the problem?

If you have vmware or some similar software you could try that. Since you don't have a second PC to try the disk on. That might help isolate the disk as bad. With vmware you can also boot from an iso, which could isolate the image.
