    go into system prefs>startup disk>Mac OS X 10.X.X on Macintosh HD

    This is your hard disk. I'm very sure that this will fix the problem. if not, quote me back, i'll try to help again. Now, next time you boot from a cd, insert the cd, restart the computer, as the computer goes 'bahhhhhh' as it has JUST been started, hold the 'c' key to load from cd. that is always. good luck.
