That is weird, because even on laptops and pre-built computers you should have an option on which will go boot into first. Does your laptop have a disc drive? After powering on the laptop, keep pressing F12 until it sends you to a screen with a boot order, then change the boot order (Make the Disc Drive 1st, HDD 2nd, LAN 3rd) then exit to save changes.

Do you have a boot from USB option?
