Check BIOS Boot Device Setting

Another thing to check is your BIOS settings and see if you still have your HDD as the primary boot device.

Check BIOS Setting

Thank you for your reply. However, that was all done prior to my first post. Setup BIOS to boot from CD-same problem; setup to boot from HDD, same problem.
