I cannot boot from cd drive, i have updated to latest bios and have set boot priority to boot from cd drive for all choices and it still will not boot from cd drive it is a windows 7 ultamate disk. infact when it asks to press any key to boot from cd the computer will not recognize the key board and just defaults and boots from the hard drive. I have 2 of these mother boards and have had problems boot ing from the cd drive as well as if you disable the flopy drive in bios the computer will not boot from either computer and both have the latest version of bios. actually one computer can boot with the windows 7 ultamate disk and it has bios version f5

One quick thing you can try, as I have come across this a few times with Gigabyte boards in the past...

Go back into the BIOS and go to Integrated Peripherals
Within this, find USB Keyboard support and change it to Enabled
Press F10 to Save Changes and reboot the PC
Then try booting from the disc again and see if it works.

Let me know how you get on.
