Answers :

For that you need to RESET your bios settings to factory defaults.
Open cpu cabinet cover and pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then all settings goes to defaults.
You can also reset settings with jumper it is near cmos cell it has 3 pins 1-2-3 put jumper in 2-3 position then power up the computer then all settings defaults.
Then if you want to boot your computer with disk then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del key to enter in bios then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boot with your disk.Then follow the procedure on screen then you can reinstall your windows or recover old windows.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
