Question about Asrock 775Dual-880 Pro Motherboard
Whereas I can boot with an IDE CD I can't with a Sata CD.
Is this normal ?
I've checked on both sata port 1&2.
Dear Postalsusie 1) Surprisingly, there are NO jumper on these CD drives. These are the new LIGHTSCRIBE ASUS type that can grave special DVD / CD on the top so you don't have to print on them... 2) The sataCD hs a strange behavior with this motherboard (mobo) Althrough it is seen at start as a Raid it is NOT specificaly seen on my BIOS in the sata range. BUT I fund the solution (thank you) It was in the IDE SETTINGS of the bios: the sata settings are there too. I had to specify NOT to consider the sata as raid. RAID might have been setup by default (?)on this mobo. a restart and go, it boot.John Dow for www.GUMP.FR

Have you set the jumpers on the SATA drive to PRIMARY DRIVE?(first drive)
Google a picture if you are unfamiliar with this. Its simple to change.
The most likely problem is that your bios is not set up to boot to that drive first.(or at all)
Go into your bios (it usually says which key to press on start up in the black screen) it could be F1 key or DEL key or F2.
Once in, be very careful not to mess anything up. You can always choose 'DO NOT SAVE CHANGES and EXIT' without worrying you have done anything wrong. Nothing will save any changes you have made, unless you specifically tell it to save, ok ?
Look through the bios options until you see 'first boot device' (its probably under 'advanced options)use arrow keys and ENTER and ESC to move around in the screens.
you can change which device your computer boots to first. (by highlighting it and then using your = and - keys.)in your case, you want to select 1) sata CD drive 2) hard drive and you can make your 3rd device your other CD if you like.(if this is in fact an ALL IN ONE SATA DVD reader and writer, then it should be the ONLY DVD or CD on your system.)
use your arrow buttons to move around in the bios settings.
you can always exit without saving and leave your system the way it was.*S*
But once you have it set to boot in this order correctly ESCape out of that screen until you see SAVE AND EXIT
Your computer will then reboot and you should be in business.
I trust this is the correct solution. If not please submit specifics about your computer model and the model of CD you are installing.Good luck
