Re: system is no boot neither with cd-rom nor hard disk
Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.

first check the CD you are using is boot able in other system if not write a bootable CD and insert the other thing is of the drive if the drive is old and the lens are weak the boot able cd wont work you will have to find anew drive to test that remove all the ide connectors or sata connectors from the motherboard except the CD drive insert the boot able cd and and restart the system then press del and enter bios setup and click advanced option and make sure the first boot drive is CD then save and exit in some motherboard you need to use f12 to select the boot device then click it and select the boot drive as cd ROM then click click it then you will see after post bios boot from cd ROM press enter it will ask for confirmation press enter again you system then boot from the cd now switch off the computer connect the hard disk and try again
You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports. The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports. You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so; First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected. Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive. (The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information). Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart. You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start. The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose. Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%22+D102GGC2+%22
ok follow this steps now.
0. Configure your BIOS and select DVD/CD ROM Drive, SATA or IDE for the first booting of the system.
1. you should have CD/DVD ROM SATA or IDE. Any of it you can use for the operations, and it's should be attach on you system unit.
2. When you are done on step 1. You can now Enter the Vista DVD/CD Disk Installer inside the CD/DVD ROM SATA or IDE.
3 Restart your system unit to proceed to the operation.
4. Automatically the system will launch the Operating System Files and it will Record all your information inside your hard disk.
Once you reset the bios everything goes to manufactures default settings. You will need to make some changes within the bios. You'll need the help of the manual. See page 3-20. If your operating system is loaded on to the ATA IDE drive make sure you set bios settings as follows: Connect the ATA IDE to MB primary master IDE port. Connect the ATA SATA drive to the MB's first SATA port. ATA Configuration Set as, [P-ATA+S-ATA] S-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the SATA controller. P-ATA Keep [Enabled] Set to [Yes] This enables the IDE controller. On-chip IDE configuration, "ATA Configuration = [P-ATA+S-ATA]". Next go to Boot menu. Make sure the ATA IDE drive is chosen as boot device three. First boot device [Floppy] (If you have a floppy disk drive connected.) Second boot device would be [DVD/CD-ROM] drive. This should be connected to the MB's secondary IDE port & the DVD/CD-ROM drives Master/Slave jumper, set to Master. Third boot device [ATA IDE drive] If your boot drive is the SATA drive than set: third boot device to the SATA drive. (Hard disk drive with operating system loaded on it). Save your changes & exit the bios. Keep in mind all ATA SATA drives are seen as Master drives. SATA drives are seen by the SATA controller & in order by their connection to the SATA port number. Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart. Windows should start.
will in that condition if you install the OS in a right way and that what happen just try to configure or check the BIOS that the first boot is the hard disk not the CD-ROM or other device, check if the hard disk is detected in the bios, check the cable of your hard disk and hard disk power wire.. and also post a little information when you reply thx....
The sata cable\bus that connect the hard disk with the motherboard get loosen up some times.
that results in the disk boot failure.
if you once remove the sata cable from the harddisk and motherboard and then fix it tightly you can get
the system working properly again.
if the problem again persist then bye a new sata cable and fix it by replacing the older one,
