When you go into the bios do you see the drives listed under the advanced tab and the sata configuration? Also is the sata mode set to AHCI?
On the motherboard is the dvd drive connected to sata port i of the sata2 ports?
Is the SSD connected to the port number 1 in the sata3 ports?

yeah all three things were listed under the advanced tab and sata configuration(dvd drive, ssd, hhd)
they werer set to AHCI but i dont think the dvd was connected to sataport 1 i think it was on 3 of the sata2 ports.
the ssd was connected to the port number 3A-1 and hdd 3B-2 something like that XD
But i recently checked the Bios and i noticed that the Dvd Drive disappeared like the pc doesnt recognize it, it only recongnizes the SSD and HHD . is this error happening because the DVD Driver is not working properly??
but if i press the bottom the thing stills open but the bios doesnt see it? why

just quick scanned this so forgive if i missed something. Pull the HD if you are installing opsy on SSD. Install HD when all is said and done. there is a difference between 3 and 6 cables by the way. idiotic huh ? try plugging the dvd in another sata slot on the board. boot sequence should be dvd/ssd/none. AHCI selected beforehand.

So you got that error message with the dvd drive connected and listed as the first boot device? If the bios doesn't see the dvd drive then it won't be in the boot order, only devices that are recognized will be in the boot order.
Make sure the dvd drive is in the sata port #1.

i did everything u guys said but i still get that stupid error!
my motherboard doesnt have sata 2 port#1
it only has sata2 2_4, sata2 2_3, sata2 2_2, sata2 2_5
and for sata3= 3_A1, 3_A2, 3_0, 3_1
SEE i dont have sata port#1 so in which one should i connected
i checked again and now the bios sees my hhd,ssd and dvd but i had to move my sata cables to different ports and i still get the error
Could it be because i have a Pirate Windows 7?? and it cannot read it? or is not working properly?
