My first thought would be that you have a hard drive problem, maybe corrupted and it cant find the drivers for your CD drive.

Do you have a spare hard drive you could replace it with to see if you can do a fresh install? Or if you have a recovery disk try that and see if can repair anything.

So you can get into the BIOS? Is it picking up your hard drive?

Can you start or attempt to start in safe mode? Does it do the same thing?
