The first CD is bootable.
I had something like this happen on an install a couple of weeks ago.
I set the boot order with Cd before HDD and it would completely ignore
the CD and just boot from the Hard Disk. I had just used that CD to
install another machine so I didn't even think the CD might be bad.
But, then a couple of days later I tried it in a machine I was sure of
and the same thing happened.
So, I burned another copy on a different machine and it worked just
fine on both. The one that was ignoring the Cd and booting from
the HDD, then booted fine From the newly burned CD.
So, I would suggest it might be possible that you have some sort of
marginal burn on the CD and it will work on some machines and not others.
