Can't Seem To Boot From DVD

I have a brand new PB iMedia S2185 on which I have Windows 8. I don't like it and want to format the hard drive and install Windows 7 but can't get it to load from DVD.

I've gone to the BIOS settings and chagned the boot order so that the DVD is first. There's also an option to press F12 to display the boot menu. The problem is only one option appears in the boot menu, and it's labelled "Windows Boot Manager". I can't get it to boot from DVD.

Any ideas please?

From the PB web site. Press F12 when booting the PB computer allow you to select where to boot from, this will work on most PB computers. If this does not work you will need to go into the bios and change the boot order.
