Hi I just bought a samsung SATA DVD drive, and I tried to install it in my pc with 2 IDE HDD's. My mobo has 4 SATA ports, it's an epox 4pda5+ mobo. It's the only SATA device I've ever tried Installing. After plugging in the data and power cable to the drive, I turned on my PC and I got the message:
Verifying DMI POOL data..... DISK BOOT FAILIURE. INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
I can't boot any of my HDDs and nothing is working. If I remove the DVD drive then everything works again.
What am I doing wrong?????

Change your boot priority on your mobo from sata drive to the ide drives, or disable boot from sata drive.
There are no SATA options in my bios! Apart from 'integrated SIL3114 ' which is enabled.
