ACER V3-551G-8454: "No Bootable Device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

My son's ACER V3-551G-8454 stopped booting and tried to boot from the network, so I assumed the HDD was dead.  Replaced the HDD, and ordered a recovery disk set from Acer to try and reinstall.  However even with the recovery disk 1 of 3 in the DVD Drive, I still get: "No Bootable Device -- insert boot disk and press any key"

 

The thing is that the "ATAPI CDROM : MATSHITA DVD-ROM UJ8E1" is visible in BIOS and set as the first boot device.  So I can't figure out why the boot media won't read.
