Windows 7: Sata DVD Drive not bootable during start up

Sata DVD Drive not bootable during start up

HI Guys. Im new to this forum so any help will be very appreciated. I recently built me a new pc. Everything went fine and I managed to install windows 7 64 bit. Couple of days later, I needed to re-install windows again. So I changed the bios so that it would recognise the dvd drive and boot the windows cd. However, this doesn't seem to happen. Once windows is installed, the Sata drive is recognised in windows and is usable.

I managed to get a workaround by using an ide dvd drive to install windows but I would like to be able to use the Sata drive that I have put in the machine.

Any suggestions?

Hello wpickett, welcome to Seven Forums!

Does the Optical Disk Drive (ODD) work correctly when connected to another SATA port?

Hi Bare Foot KId. Thanks for the quick reply. Yeah I have tried the device in different ports and also checked to see if it was the drive by using another Sata ODD. This does not seem to work either so i'm pretty sure its not got anything to do with the drive that i'm using.
