ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z wont boot from cd.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Allright, you guys are my last hope. Ive tryed for two days now.

The thing is that i want to make a new clean install of windows. But when ever i try to boot from the CD it seems that the drive dont even bother reading dvd.
Here is what i tryed so far:

Googled every single possibilty.
Updated the Asus mobo firmware.
Updated the lite-on DVD drive firmware (ATAPI ihas122)
Changed to bootdisc to be the dvd drive (it just skips to the next priorety and loads windows)
Unpluged all discs ecpet for the OS drive and the dvd drive (same as above)
Disbled the disk so only the dvd drive is left as a possible boot drive (getting the message to insert bootdrive and press a key)
Tryed to reset the cmos 1. via the button and after that i unpluged everything and took out the battery.

Still, it seems that it wont use the drive in the bootup, wich i super weird.

Any ideas?

Specs are below (Viva la' value)
