Did you change the bios setting. You need to change boot order priority. Generally hard disk is set to boot.
change it to
2. hard disk.
You can keep this config. If there is no CD in CD drive, it will boot from hard disk.
Incase you do not know how to change BIOS:
To enter into Bios, you have to press [F2] or [F12] or [Delete] as soon as to press power button. Correct option depends upon motherboard (which contains bios) For me, I have GigaByte Motherboard and [F2] works on me. Initially for 2 seconds, there is a splash screen (before boot loader or before windows starts to boot) which indicates which is the shortcut to enter into bios config. If you miss it, you need to reboot and keep pressing that key. if the screen stays for a very short time (not enough to read the shortcut) you can press [pause] or [pause break] key. After reading the key binding (shortcut key) again press [pause] key to resume and quickly press shortcut key for BIOS.
