I just put together my first custom build. Everything powered up just fine from the start. First thing I did was go into the BIOS and set my SATA type to AHCI since I am using a solid state drive.
I then put in a my Windows 7 DVD which consists of a burned ISO image. However, it keeps telling me it can not find the software.
I tried burning the ISO at the slowest speed, and the fastest speed, none of which had any different result.
I tried setting the DVD drive to boot first in the BIOS, and also using F12 from the Gigabyte flash screen. No help.
I initially had the DVD drive hooked up to SATA port 1, and the SSD to port 0. I switched the DVD drive to port 4. The difference this time was instead of it telling me it couldn't read the disk, it said "boot from CD/DVD" then told me it couldn't read the disk.
I then changed SATA port 4/5 to IDE, (not knowing the difference) and it gave me the original error, without the "boot from CD/DVD."
I need help figuring out if my problem is the actual disk and the ISO, or if I do not have things set up properly, so I know which way to proceed.
All components are brand new.
