You're contradicting the actions of the Windows CD. tapping F8 is attempting to use advanced recovery menu (safe mode etc) . You're supposed to insert the CD and wait for a message saying press any key to boot from CD. if you dont get that then change your boot sequence from BIOS (keep tapping F10 on boot) and set CD/DVD drive to position 1 . Another alternative is to use a function key to select boot order by continuously tapping it on boot with CD inside. usually f6-f12 . try each
Will I receive the message while the screen is black with a blinking white cursor?
