Cd rom not recognized in bios.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently bought an msi z77-gd65 and i5-3750k and attempted to put all my old stuff from my old Asus p6t onto the new board. That included my 2x 500gb hdds and blu ray/dvd player. I turn the computer on and get into bios so I can change boot priority to cd/dvd to format and load windows. Funny thing is, I can't open old dvd player to put windows disc in. I click system status see that both my hdds are recognized but no dvd player. I try changing the sata to ide from ahci and save changes to no avail. I've tried my old dvd player. I've tried the sata cables to the hdds on the dvd. Basically I have 4 sata cables tried Em all on all the storage devices on all the sata ports (there's 8 of em) tried the dvd player all by itself as well. I only things recognized are the hdds which won't boot because of the cpu change.

Any help here is appreciated I'm going nuts here.

Since you say you have 8 sata ports: Did you connect it to a third-party onboard controller by any chance? (should be in the manual which ports are controlled by which controller, they often have a different colour as well)

If you did, check in the BIOS if the controller is enabled (usually under some kind of "advanced" / "configuration" tab in the bios)


EDIT: missed that you tried all 8 ports ...

When you say: load windows, do you mean you want to install it again? If so, you can do that from an USB as well (if you can't find the solution).
You'd need an other PC to make an ISO from your windows DVD and use microsoft's own "CD/DVD download tool" to make the USB bootable.
