Windows 7: Can't boot from CD on one laptop but it does work on another?

Can't boot from CD on one laptop but it does work on another?

Hey everyone, first post to the forums

Anyway, I have burned an ISO to a disk containing the software MHDD (HDDGURU: MHDD) as I'm trying to perform a low level format on the hard drive. However, when I insert the CD and boot, it seems like the laptop just skips booting from the CD and goes directly to "No OS found" (Yeah I need to repair windows so that's why I'm formatting). In the BIOS I have correctly set the CD to be the first thing in the boot sequence, and I have tested the CD with my other laptop, which is able to boot from the CD just fine. Also the laptop I'm trying to boot the CD with is able to boot certain other CDs like normal, and I've also checked the ISO with PowerISO to see if it was bootable and it is.

I really hope that anyone has a solution for this problem as it's been bugging me for days :S

Thanks in advance!
