Question about ASUS Terminator 2 AE1 (T2AE1) Barebone
Make sure the cmos setup is set to try booting from the CDROM. There are various methods to access cmos setup...but usually you need to press either the Delete key, or F10 or F12 right after turning on the power.
If it won't boot from the CDROM, the problem is is more likely to be in the power supply or motherboard than the hard drive.

Tips for a great answer:
you might have to get rid of the virus or melware first
it sounds like you are on the path if the cd rom is being detected but not booting maybe it needs a clean place a couple of drops of liquid cd cleaner on top of a cd and run it
if still no luck
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer
Reboot the computer As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting
If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.
