P5B Deluxe (wont boot to cd-rom)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Folks,

Cant seem to get any cd to boot on my new board. I have tried multiple cd-rom drives cables and power connectors and os disks,

I have set the bios to boot from Atapi cd rom but on reboot the bios still tells me to check for a boot device or to insert a cd.

The bios picks up my floppy and sata drives fine and I have configured my raid 0 with no problems. I have tried all jumper configs to no avail.

I'm hoping Ive missed something simple but I cant think of anything else to try short of returning the board.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'll guess you're using an EIDE (a.k.a. PATA) optical drive, in that case, make sure the JMicron controller is enabled and/or set to ATAPI.

Yeah, the drive is EIDE and the jmicron controller is enabled in the bios and set to ide. I can hear the disk spinning in the drive but the bios will not boot to it. I removed the cmos battery to reset the board but still no joy. Would a bios upgrade be worth while?

Any other suggestions are appreciated

Thanks

Glad im not the only one who has run into this problem, your solution looks great but I dont have 6 floppy drives available to me until tomorrow.

I will update the drives firmware and the bios to 1004 and see if that makes any difference.

Anyone know if its possible to install windows from usb stick with this board

Thanks

If in the BIOS, under boot device priority, you don't have any other options besides ATAPI CD-ROM then your board isn't recognizing the drive. It should come up with some short descrip of the drive if it is properly recognized.

Since you already tried different cables you either have a dead drive or a dead IDE port on the port.

I just logged a request with Asus technical support, they have asked me to update the bios on the board to 1201. Is this bios not for the p5b dh deluxe?

Surely Asus would not expect me to update the bios on my 965 to a 975 bios
