That is odd. Although I did have a similar problem once. My DVD refused to be recognized as the boot device when plugged into the on-chip SATA 3 header. I had to enable the 3rd party SATA 3 ports and use one of them for my DVD in order for it to be recognized as a boot device. (The board had no SATA 2, or else I would have used that). Could your issue be something similar?

thanks for the reply, but I already solved the problem with my PC with the help of command prompt. this is what I did. I Run Command Prompt as an Administrator. Type cmd in Windows 8 Metro UI and press cltr+shift+enter
Type following and say enter
reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
Reboot the system

I never was able to stomach Win8 (RC) long enough to find out if it was stable. :lol:

windows 7 is good, though windows 8 is fast compared to the other OS that you'll love to use it.

If I had a touch screen or a tablet... maybe. But to each his own. I'm happy you have your issue resolved and are enjoying the O/S.
