Question about Gigabyte GA880GMAUD2H AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gbs USB 30 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Hello mgarner - Does the system actually try to boot from the CD? You can tell by the LED on the CD drive or you can put your ear next to the drive and hear if it's trying to read the disc.
If it is there are two possible problems, first is that you have a bad drive or secondly that you have a bad disc (the more likely of the two).
See if you can come up with another disc and give it another go.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.
