Go into the bios, set the cd/dvd drive to be the first boot drive.

Then make sure the operating system disc is inserted, and exit and save the bios.

From there, it should load the disc, and you would just follow the instructions.

You need some kind of plan; either a

realistic model.

Good luck and have fun.
