The Motherboard provides for two IDE and two SATA ports. I have connected one IDE HDD (Samsung 40 GB SP4002H) to the Primary Master IDE connector and one SATA HDD (WD 160 GB) to the SATA port 1. The SATA port 2 is empty. The Secondary IDE slot is connected to two DVD drives in Master-Slave jumper configuration on the same cable (but not Cable Select).
When I switch on the machine from cold, the system would not boot and would come up with the error: Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected boot device and press a key.
I do a Cntrl+Alt+Del and go in to BIOS to change the device priority to CD and it boots up to Windows.
What could be the issue?
