My mother board only has SATA ports on it and my DVD drive uses IDE so I bought a converter.
The DVD drive works fine this way when I put my hard drive that has windows xp on it in the same computer.
But, when I have my new blank hard drive in and I tell it to boot from CD-ROM it finds no bootable devices.
I've tried setting the DVD drive to master slave and cable select.
Any info on a way to fix this would be much appreciated.
P.S. sadly I have no other DVD drives at this time that I could try.
