FreeBSD 9.1 fails to boot from CD on Notebook

after failing to get FreeBSD working with my ASUS F70SL Notebook I tried
to get it to work on [I][COLOR="Blue"]Toshiba Tecra A10-M14[/COLOR][/I].
I downloaded the [FILE]FreeBSD-9.1-REALEASE-disc1.iso[/FILE] from the
official FreeBSD homepage and burnt it with [I][COLOR="Blue"]Ashampoo
Burning Studio 2013[/COLOR][/I].
Now, if I select "Boot from CD-ROM" in my notebooks BIOS it detects the
CD, starts to boot from, it but only for about 1 second. After this the
screen blackens, the notebook reboots and boots normally from HDD (even
tough I still have the CD inserted and the CD-ROM drive is still the
first boot device).
This happens that fast I don't even have a chance to get a picture of
the error that might occur.
Any ideas about BIOS settings I may change?
I burnt the CD twice by the way, with different burning software, to
avoid damaged or incomplete disc.
Thanks in advance!
