Boot from cd using pci ide card
I recently built a new computer and, due to lack of ide ports on my chosen motherboard, I bought a pci ide/sata adapter (MASSCOOL XWT-RC018). I connected my cd (actually its a dvd, but that shouldn't make a difference) drive to the ide card. (the drive is on cable select and on the master slot of the cable). I can't seem to boot a knoppix live cd from this drive. I have heard about changing SCSI settings in the bios, but I have looked at my bios and cant find anything of the sort. My motherboard is an ASUS P5Q-VM. I don't have a floppy drive installed so a boot floppy is not an option. All help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for the reply evongugg. I am using the onboard ide port for my two hard drives. I suppose I could swap them, but I'd like to make sure there's nothing else I can do first. Also, I have tried a windows xp installation disk as well since writing this thread. I could not get it to boot from this either.
