Booting from a CD is totally up to the bios firmware.  Most of the
systems that I have seen do not include this feature, though more
manufacturers are including it in their systems.

It appears that the default still seems to be A: C: for boot drives
on most systems.  Notice that they assume that you are going to use 
a broken system regardless.  I have seen some systems that have a CD
rom boot feature and they include a CD that can be booted to return the
system to Factory Micro Lost Defaults
