I have a machine with Windows XP and a separate CD player and DVD player in it. I want to do a fresh install of Windows 7 on it and I went into the BIOS boot sequence and don't see an option where I can make the DVD player the 1st bootable device. It shows the CD as an option but not the DVD. I have tried to boot to the CD with the DVD in the DVD player but no luck. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

You might try swapping the cable connections on the two drives...
