I have seen where it may be waiting on you to press a key to boot from cd/dvd but it doesn't show that text when just booting the VM.

Do you get an error message?

Is this Hyper-V virtual machine?

Ended up deleting the first VM and rebuilding it as a Generation #1 and all is good.
Still wonder what that generation thing had to do with preventing the iso from kicking in..
Case closed anyway
