The error you are getting points at it not being able to load the cdrom.sys driver at boot.

or is rolling back (driver->ripristina?) if it this , i can not do it , it's gray , not selectable
yes, it's that.

I would try uninstalling the intel rapid storage technology, as that would remove the other driver.

Good idea.

That guy was connecting a IDE device through a IDE-to-SATA adapter and then connected to a SATA port on his motherboard.
He solved by connecting the SATA cable in another port on the motherboard.

If you did the same (used a IDE-to-SATA adapter) then you can try too. Otherwise it's not the same problem.

Why is your dvd burner listed as a SCSI device? It should be listed as a SATA device. I would look at the BIOS settings.

I have the same dvd burner, it is shown as a SATA devise and it runs perfect.

What mobo do you have?

With my BIOS I would look under "System">"ATA Port Information"

You want the on board eSATA controller set as "Enable" and the controller set to "IDE Mode" or "AHCI Mode"

Look under "Peripherals" for additional SATA setup parameters.
