First boot would be DVD/CD and Second boot Hard disk on many motherboards but I don't know if you can set yours that way as Wishmaster has pointed out.

So it may be best to follow Wishmasters instructions in above post #69 and I quoted below.

If yours does this:

On a Gigabyte board, when the motherboard splash screen comes up, just press F12 (I think it is .. please confirm) for a Advanced Boot screen.

Select CD/DVD drive and it will then boot from the CD/DVD.
I think we covered everything.

I'm a bit late on this, but as a Gigabyte MOBO owner just want to say that all the settings in those screenshots look perfect to me. Happy days with the SSD

AHCI is generally accepted to maximize performance. Do you have the latest firmware?
