Computer won't boot HDDs after DVD burner Instillation

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I just plugged in (installed) my new DVD burner and now the only thing on my computer that boots is the main SATA hard drive. I have all the jumpers set to Cable Select and I have the right IDE cables plugged in to there hard drives. What could be the problem ?

You should only need the HDD set to boot and nothing else... I only ever set it manually to boot from cd for windows installs... Does it even list the drive on the IDE's in bios?? If so which is it setting to 1st and which 2nd??

Under "My Computer" the only thing that is listed is my main SATA hard drive. I should have 1 other IDE HDD, a CD Drive and the DVD burner showing up. In bios, it only lists the SATA.
