It is checking to see if a bootable disk (i.e. windows startup disk) is inserted. Obviously, if it didn't check + your computer didn't work then you wouldn't be able to use your startup disk.

How do you remove and replace headlight bulb on a Mercedes 1989 560 SEC?

Before you begin: DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS!! Open the hood. In the back of the headlight assembly, there is a boot with a wiring harness attached to the back of the assembly. Twist the boot assembly until it pops out (there is a three-pronged tab holding it in). Pull the bulb-in-boot assembly out of the headlight housing. Pull the old headlight bulb out. Plug the new bulb in, referring to the aforementioned warning about not touching it (the oils in your fingers will damage your new bulb). Line the three tabs with the slots in the housing and twist it tight. By the way; Dontcha just love your 89 SEC? There's an SEC club on the internet. Check it out.
