When I restart with the boot disk I made (or the intstallation disk) the computer starts up normally. I am not being prompted to scrub it. Help!


you need to change the boot order of the computer to boot from cd instead of hard drive.

When you first start up the computer you should see a message to press to enter setup the most common keys are:
  • Delete
  • F1
  • F2
  • F3
  • F5
  • F10
  • Escape
  • Insert
  • Control + Escape
  • Alt + Escape
  • Control + Alt + Escape
  • Control + Alt + Enter
Once you've entered setup you should be able to find a selection something to the effect of boot order chage the fist boot selection or primary boot device to the CD rom so that the computer will boot from the boot disk instead of the hard drive
