Well the bios manual didn't tell much.
The BIOS will attempt to arrange the CD/DVD drive boot sequence automatically.
You can also change the booting sequence.
I hope you are using the F10 key to "save and exit"?
I will now ask a few real stupid questions. (sorry, I have to ask)
Are you sure that the CD drive is hooked up?
Is the power cable attached?
Is the data cable attached?
Do you see any lights flash on and then off on the drive to indicate that the startup even looked at it?
Is this a SATA or IDE CD drive?
If the OS is somewhat operational, have you attempted to "browse" a cd?
Don't be sorry, your helping me!
Are you sure that the CD drive is hooked up? Yes
Is the power cable attached? Yes
Is the data cable attached? Yes
Do you see any lights flash on and then off on the drive to indicate that the startup even looked at it? Yes, I know it's corrected properly because it's recognised in the bios, it says CD/DVD Drive as my slave drive and my hard drive as the master.
Is this a SATA or IDE CD drive? IDE, the thick grey cable which I think has 40 bits on it? My motherboard came with an orange cable, which I guess is SATA but my hard drive doesn't have that connection on it.
Thankyou once again, really appreciate your help
