Is there a message like "Press any key to boot from CD" (at the bottom of the screen)?
If not, try pressing F12 to get a menu where you can select the drive to boot from.

Hi,

Thx, I know about F12 and I press this key but it's not working....I' afraid that it is teh problem with my hard disc...
I'm searching drivers to my hard disc but nothing, maybe you can help me.
Hard disc is Fujitsu Siemens MHW2120BH, maybe you know where I'm finding drivers ?

You don't need drivers for the disk itself, only for the SATA controller. But that shouldn't be the problem in this case, because Windows setup just wouldn't detect the harddisk.
I'd try to delete all partitions on the disk: I had several times the problem that Windows setup had problems with my partition table...
