Okay, insert the Windows disc and reboot the machine.
There should be a point it says "Press any key to boot from cd..."

Hit something, and it launches the CD.

Unfortunately, the system doesn't even the opportunity to recognize the disk so it can't boot from there. It simply keeps rebooting itself over and over again.

Fine, guess we may have to force it to boot from the disc.
We'll need to go into the BIOS to do this. See here on how to do that, it's hard to describe since every BIOS is different.
