Changing BIOS Settings

I have a custom built computer that has been running the Windows 7 Release Candidate. I've been trying to install the full version but have not successfully been able to boot from the CD/DVD Drive. There are two options to prompt the screen before Windows starts either press DELETE for BIOS SETTINGS or F12 for BOOT MENU. First off, I'm not sure which one I'm supposed to so I tried both. When I went to the BOOT MENU the screen was frozen and I could not select the BOOT FIRST DEVICE. What am I doing wrong?

Check for a BIOS update for the motherboard, and a firmware update for the DVD drive.

The DVD drive must be set as bootable in the BIOS and must be set to boot before the hard disk.
If your DVD drive is set as a bootable device in the BIOS, and is set to boot before the hard disk you should see a prompt to "Press any key to boot from CD".
