Question about retail mac

Hi there, could someone help me out please?

 

I purchased a retail version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard from amazon.co.uk:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mac-OS-Snow-Leopar...0723&sr=8-1

 

My first question is, is this an upgrade disc or the full version?

 

If its the full version then I need some help.

 

Everytime I have the disc in my DVD drive, no matter what I have the motherboard set to boot from, it always seems to read the disc, then boot into windows. How do I go about getting the disc being able to be read?

 

My 2 DVD drives are

Samsung DVD-DL

Ben-Q Lightscribe DVD-DL

 

Thanks in advance

For booting original Mac DVD on a PC you need a boot CD with a bootloader that load it
