You will need to set your DVD player as primary boot device...

Just boot up in the regular manner. Before you see the splash screen continually hit the f key that will bring you to the bios screen, set that to boot from DVD. Now turn off the computer, and put the DVD in and boot up. You are good to go.

I have a Dell it is f12. Every manufacturer has it set differently. Use your computer manual, look

up Bios screen. But you could try f2 or f12, they are common.
