Re: The cd-roms @ new dvd rom with the red cable makes...
The DVD drive you are trying to use uses a SATA (serial ATA) connection (the red cable). If the drive came with any software on a disk, you should install the drivers for it. Otherwise check the manufacturer's website for information and/or drivers for the installation of the drive.

For checking: 1.cd rom/dvd rom is functinal/ working properly 2. sata cable is ok. 3. cd window xp is clean and clear.
if all that okay, try again reinstall.
if 1 and 2 is okay, you should see the cd rom in [my computer] so, what you need now is try to clean your cd/disk with suitable cleaner. if you dont have it, you can try with perfume with have alcoholic. clean using soft tissue and make sure no dirt at that disc.

there may be a clash of IRQs of the DVD ROMs....
the 1st DVD ROM has been alotted a IRQ and then you connected the 2nd DVD ROM but the OS does not know which DVD ROM drive to look for while loading the OS to look for the boot CD....based on the setting in BIOS for boot order....
plus you may have to define both the DVD roms as primary and slave by making changes in the jumper cables...
(google and loacte the solution for the jumper setting for that)
for your first boot cd/dvd rom, 2nd boot hdd is it serial ide or sata, then you can disable the 3rd boot device, if it freezes and does not save reboot your pc in some motherboard there is key to press for you choose which device to boot first if you find the key sometimes its f12 or f10 when press this it will promt which device to boot first then choose which of those devices you want to boot first
hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend try to do this things. first i suggest to change new ide or sata cable.if still persist.try the following: Boot order: Traditionally, a computer is set to boot first from the floppy drive, and then from the main hard drive (Drive C). This means that the computer will check the floppy drive first for boot files. If there is no disk in the floppy drive, the computer will then go to the hard drive to look for boot files. That is why if you leave a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive and try to boot up, you'll get an error message such as "NTLDR is missing. Press any key to restart." or "Non-system disk or disk error." This can be changed to pretty much any order, including CD and DVD drives. It is useful when installing Windows on a new or just-formatted computer to set the computer to boot first from a CD-ROM drive, and then insert the Windows installation CD-ROM into that drive. This saves you from having to use boot floppies that might or might not come with the Windows CD-ROM. Good luck.
Test the CMOS BATTERY..TO MAKE SURE ITS GOOD IF NOT REPLACE.If it test good leave out for 5-10 minutes replace.motherboard bios should now beat default settings.reenter the bios.move cd to first boot.save changes.if you do not save changes it will not work.place.computer should now boot from disk.

Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
try this first. (If I am understanding you correctly).
Power on the PC, press the Delete key every two seconds untill the boot menu loads. Go to the title, Boot. Set you're boot device's in the correct order. They should be listed as follows.
1st Boot device Floppy drive. (If a floppy drive is connected).
2nd Boot device CD-ROM/DVD drive.
3rd Boot device Hard drive.
(If you're CD-ROM drive is not listed in the bios main menu, than you're CD-ROM drive is not connected correctly). Please check the CD-ROM data cable is firmly & correctly connected), also check the power cable is firmly connected). If you are using more than one CD/DVD-ROM drive on the same data cable, check that you are listing the correct CD/DVD drive in the boot order. To change the drive's order while in the Boot menu, see page 34 in you're manual.
If the above does not address you're problem, please describe the issue/problem again.
If I can help you further, feel free to post. Suggestions & comments welcomed.
