Goldstar LG-4040B Super Multi-write drive won't Boot Bootable CD-roms.

Set BIOS to CDrom as 1st device and disabled all other boot devices and tried 3 bootable CDRoms that work on systems with just a CDRom drive.

Tried firmware versions A301, A302 and the latest A303...

Gigabyte GA-7VA v1.0 mobo, original BIOS as i can't get a reliable update through live update, recognises board as a v2.0 board...

thanks in advance...
