Boot Acer Ferrari 1200 laptop from dvd to upgrade vista to windows 7

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I have been asked to upgrade an acer ferrari 1200 laptop from vista hoe premium to windows 7 ultimate.  However, I find there is no option to change the boot order in bios and seemingly no f button that requests choice of boot device.
I am stuck as it seems I cannot boot from anything but the hard drive.
Does anyone know if there is a certain button which I can press during the start up to specify boot from cd?
