Alienware X51 R1 unable to boot from CD

I noticed lately that my x-51 R1 running Windows 7, is unable to boot from the CD/DVD drive in UEFI mode. I tried it with a Linux CD for class, and I am currently trying to reset my fathers old HP MediaSmart Server via a recovery disc and in both attempts the Computer will boot straight from the HDD.

Boot setup is CD/DVD, USB CD/DVD, HDD.


Computer runs Intel i3-2120 3.3 GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium, bought in December 2012.

Any help would be appreciated, I will try to answer all questions asked as well. 

Calling Customer Service would be nice, but they try to make me pay...
