I recently upgraded from Windows XP 32-bit, to Windows 7 64-bit. Everything seemed to go smoothly, but now my DVD-ROM won't work. It won't even show up in my BIOS. My two SATA hard drives work fine, but not the ROM. I upgraded all my drivers, however, under the Device Manager, I still get an alert beside my RAID Controller. Could this be the issue? If so, how do I go about fixing it. I downloaded the drivers for my chipset already.

If you're not able to see the device in your Bios, the problem does not related to windows.

Try to reset your Bios to default settings, and make sure the DVD-ROM connectors (SATA & power) are stapled properly.
