You're probably looking in the wrong place. SATA is plug and play so there isn't really anything to setup. You need to find the boot menu, usually located towards the later part of the bios.

Seems like its setup correctly. I've encountered drives before that fail to boot a DVD. Try switching the drive to anything else.
