    Do you have HDD/CD/DVD in your PC at the moment?

    -- There definitely is such an option in every bios How to Set BIOS to Boot from CDROM - www.hiren.info.
    -- Your motherboard manual should tell you more.
    -- Upgrading BIOS to the latest version would be a good idea.

    Is the OS booting OK, and has it always, or is this a recent occurence?
    If it ha never booted, you should have a look at the leads and jumpers on the HD(s). Apart from total HD failure, that is the only reason for such a thing.

    Thanks for the responses. It is a new computer that has worked fine for the last month or so. When I switch it on it comes up with the insert boot and press any key message?

    It is apparent that the CD/DVD is the first bios choice in your sequence. But if, as you say, no HDs or CD/DVD options are showing in your Bios options, then I am afraid, other than the previous suggestiions in this thread, I cannot think of any other remedy. Even if your HDs etc were not working (unlikely for both!), but connected correctly, they should still show in the bios as a priority choice.
