Answers :

You must go to bios and change boot sequence from harddrive first to cd first. When you start your pc it always go to harddrive and freezes up. when you change boot sequence it will only go to cds first then follow directions.
You must go into the BIOS on boot up and choose to boot from CD-Rom instead of the hard drive. When you first turn on your machine and the HP comes up push F10 key to get into the BIOS. Look for boot priorities and put the CD/DVD Rom in the first boot position (directions on how to move these item up/down are at the bottom of the page)

Then your disks will be useful. Put one in and reboot. It should read you disc and follow instructions from there.

Hope this helps you, good luck
