Thinkcentre M58p Desktop C2D-E8400 wont boot up from DVD rive

To whom this may concern, I cannot get this Lenovo

tower to load an OS (in this case Windows 7

Ultimate) or to boot from the CD/DVD drive from

any of 4 different OS install CD\DVD's! One Xp

Bootable CD, two Win 7 boot DVD's and even a Linux

OS boot CD. The CD/DVD drive will blink 11-12

times when a disk is inserted and then nothing.
Yes, I have changed the boot order to CD/DVD drive

first and even removed everything BUT the CD/DVD

drive and still no boot up!

Not on a M58p, but I had to change my boot type to 'legacy' for it to boot a Win 7 install dvd.

First, thanks BiggAl for the reply, I believe after changing boot order, that was my next BIOS check and I'm pretty sure chose legacy but I'll check again!
