    You appear to be describing your system's BOOT menu which appears to be set to BOOT from your computer's HARD DISK first before trying any other device.

    You need to edit your BOOT device order under the BiOS SETUP menu of your computer and have your CD-ROM device be the first in the order list, followed by whatever you'd like to have next (usually the system's HARD DISK).

    This way the system will look to the CD-ROM device first for a BOOTable device before going to the system's HARD DISK.

    If your existing USB keyboard cannot activate the SETUP menu, you will need to find a hardwired KB to make the changes...
