Are you saying that you got into BIOS and changed the setting and that 
were still unable to boot from cdrom?  Or are you saying that ESC did 
not get you into BIOS?

If you did manage to change the BIOS; many systems expect you to also 
press a key to actually boot from cdrom.  In this way; an unattended 
reboot will not boot from cdrom even if the BIOS is configured to boot 
from cdrom.

Some systems have another key (sometimes F12) that will allow you change 
the boot order for one boot only.
