Problem with Installing Windows 8 from CD on my new Lenovo G50-80

Dear community!

I have problem instaling Windows 8 on my new Lenovo laptop G50-80. I received Lenovo CD with Windows 8, inserted that CD in DVD drive and placed DVD drive as first in boot priority.

The problem which I have is that my Lenovo doesn't load Windows 8, instead it goes every time to FREE DOS. What should I do?

Here are picture of BIOS settings:
