hi guys, need some help with formattng my computer

hopefully someone can help me:)
i tried to reformat my comp and something has gone horribly wrong!!!
im am not the most computer literate person so yeah bear with me please:)
okay first off i put my os disc in and then tried to change my boot first options. well first off i didnt see any thing pertaining to partitioning, but let the disc run, hour goes by and i get to the end the comp restarts gets to log in screen and a message popps up "need to validate copy of windows" i press yes okay and then my screen goes blue and then nothing ....nada. i have been up all night trying to figure out wat i have done wrong... now i cant even boot from cd and when igo to bios cannot see option to make that first boot
so please any help would be greatly appreciated
thanks :)

So.. It WAS booting from CD first, and now it does not boot from the CD? and, are you not finding the BIOS option to set the boot order, or you are going to where you know the option is, and it is no longer there?

I'll choose "Optical" - as in Optical laser CDROM

that's my final answer.
