Completed Build (Will not boot)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

Complete noob here, This is the system I just put together:

AMD 1090T
Gigabyte 880GA HD3H
G-Skills 4x2GB 1600 MHz
60 GB SSD
1TB HDD
Asus DVD drive
650 Watt PSU
Using internal Video

So everything went together without a problem, went to load up windows this evening and all I can get is "disk boot failure, insert system disk...."

I hit F12 and scrolled down to CDROM hit enter, seems like it is not recognizing the CDROM? No idea! I made a second Boot CD because I thought the first one was not burned correctly. This did nothing.

So is there a way that I can check to see if the motherboard is seeing the CDROM?

Also another question, while in the BIOS I saw that my SSD was slave and HDD was master. I want to use the SSD for the OS of course, do i need to change the SSD to master somehow? Let me know how if so.

I know I can search for this but I have been and cannot seem to figure anything else out.

Thanks in advance,

Jesse

It is possible the CD ROM drive is defective. If you go into the BIOS, the main page should list the connected drives. Is your SSD and HDD connected with IDE or SATA?? I thought SATA eliminated the whole slave/master configuration. If you can find a setting for the hard drive in the BIOS, set it to AHCI.

Have you checked the boot devices in the BIOS as well and made sure the CD ROM is on the list?

in your bios check your boot priority

it should be: 1 HDD (SSD)
2 CD-rom

and your FDD should be disabled

also you should have your drives spaced appart on the sata channels.

EG. Sata1 - SSD
Sata3 - HDD
Sata5 - CD-Rom

then they should all be on master channels

Boot priority is good. The CDROM is on the list and I have selected it! That is when I get the error

Okay, one thing to note is that the DVD drive is not a SATA drive. I didn't think about it, but ended up with IDE connection

LOL, I moved the SATA plugs and re-checked the IDE cable. It was not seated properly.
Thanks for the help guys

Make sure your Bios is set so your onboard IDE controller is on.

That's alright. I was trying to load Windows 7 on a computer the other night, and the drive would not boot the disk. Was driving me nuts. then I realized the drive was a cd drive, not a dvd drive. CD drives aren't good at reading dvd's!!!
LOL
