Help with BIOS setup Tags: Chipsets BIOS SATA DVD Motherboards Last response: January 19, 2011 4:43 PM in Motherboards Share Jim76 January 19, 2011 3:10:03 PM Hi there. I am a first time PC builder. I posted a similar question under DVD drives, but perhaps I would be better asking a broader question here. I have a SATA HDD connected to a SATA port. I have a SATA DVD connected to a IDE port via a IDE>SATA converter. The DVD has power but wont boot up my OS DVD (or any DVD's) I have tried various combinations in BIOS which I thought were logical, and in return have had a number of unhelpful messages from my BIOS and no joy in booting up my OS. How should I be setting up BIOS? Hopefully one of the many knowledgeable experts on this branch of the forum will be able to help!

If it still doesn't boot try connecting the drive through a IDE cable instead of a converter m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
