I installed a new ECS NForce3-A and an AMD Athlon 64 socket 754 yesterday. It was replaced because the old m/b would not power up anymore. System powers fine now. The CMOS is showing HDD on IDE 0 and
DVD on IDE 1. Nothing in IDE 2. Only the HDD is listed in the BIOS. There are no DVD drives detected in BIOS.

The hard drive is installed on IDE 1 port at the end of the cable with no slave. Jumper removed.

The DVD is installed on IDE 2 at the end of the cable. Jumper set for master. Second DVD is at the middle of the cable with jmper set for slave.

I checked all connections. Power is good per voltmeter. Lights on DVD drives power on and trays open. Old ribbon cable was used. New ribbon cables gave same result.

I removed the slave drive and reset the other as master. Still not detected in BIOS.

Not sure where to go from here. I need to get at least one DVD drive detected so I can set the boot sequence to boot from DVD for a format/install of Win XP.

Your help is appreciated

The Drive is now detected in BIOS. It tries to boot from the DVD as I placed it in the first boot option. It wont read the OS disk. Im obviously overlooking something simple. Any thoughts?
