Are you sure you want to bbot from -bootonly CD?

How did you burn the CD? The common error for Windows users is to
write the downloaded image as an ordinary file while it's an iso image.
Do you have/had other OSes installed at this hardware?
Do you check if BIOS is trying to use a CD to install?

Please show any display/console output you see while booting (and
maybe an error message) and we'll be glad to help you. A breaf
description of your hardware (motherboard/chipset/memory/CD DRIVE/etc)
may also give us some tips.
