I build a new system with following.

Sabertooth 55i
intel i5 750
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb
and OLD Sony DVD RW
Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Problem is

when the first boot I have a message "Reboot and select a proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press any key"

WD hard drive is SATA and Sony DVD RW is connected with IDE. IDE Cable's blue color connected on MOBO and black side connected to DVD drive.
my boot priority is set first sony dvd rw.
my operating system dvd boots fine in other system

on my BIOS I can see HD and if any body can tell me how to see DVD drive.
on the boot priority I see Sony DVD RW IDE.

another problem

my outside power button is not working.
but MOBO power switch is working fine.

I connected ASUS Q connecter which includes, two separate single pin (+ and -), 2 pin IDE, 2 pin PWR SW and 2 pin HDD SW. this is same as suggested on user guide.

any ideas ??

Thanks

problem is solved

here is what I did


I created a bootable USB drive for Windows 7
check below link for the process of how to create bootable USB drive with MSFT utility.

http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2009/12/-the-usb-f...

boot up the system and change the BIOS with removable drive as first priority.
after than pressing f8 repeatadly for the next boot and select usb drive as a boot.
and this install my windows 7


about the other problem of the power switch on the case not working.
actually, I did make a mistake of connecting the wires.
of all the ASUS Q connector only important was power SW which is at the right corner at second place.
