Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. I want to use a sata DVD Burner while using a IDE hard drive. when I connect the DVd drive and start the computer I get a message say [Boot disk failure] insert system disk andpress enter. my Gigabyte motherboard GA-8EANXP-D has four silicom 3114 connectors.& 4 SB sata connectors I have gone into the device manager and the Sata Image Sil3114 controller is there and working fine, I went into the cmos setup Utility and have these settings. Onchip primaryPCI/IDE enabled. Sata raid/AHCI mode [Raid] shut down and restarted same problem, went back in again and set onchip sata mode [ Auto] would not start up. went into the raid configuration Utility. in the Phyical and logical drive it shows the HL-DT-ST-DVD Ram GH-20 CD-Rom. I hope you ca assist me with this problem. Many Thanks. Terry.
This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.
This will be fixing your problem.
Have a great day

Tips for a great answer:
VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).
