My MOBO not detecting S-ATA DVD ROM Tags: Chipsets SATA DVD Drives BIOS Motherboards Last response: May 24, 2010 8:34 PM in Motherboards Share jkim425 May 24, 2010 11:17:36 AM Hi. This will be my first thread as a newbie Ok so my problem is that my BIOS does not detect my DVD Drive which is a SATA (cd/dvd reader/writer). 1) the model of this DVD drive is: Hitachi/LG GH40L 16x DVD±RW DL SATA Drive w/LightScribe (Black) 2) My mobo is: ASrock A785GXH/128M. (which i think its my mobo is not the problem since my BIOS reads my samsung 500gb SATA) What I'm trying to do here is boot up with the DVD Drive so that I can install my OS. I currently have Windows XP Pro installed but definitely not genuine since I get an error when I try to install SP2. ..Trying to install Win 7 Ultimate x64 bit! Please help! Thank you so much.
