Hi, i made an original thread here: click here - the topic changed slightly so i need to make this new one.

Anyway i just installed a different motherboard yesterday, its a abit ip35 pro xe, i have everything else connected properly (i assume), the bios detects my hard drive and sata dvd. Anyway i set sata cd rom as first boot priority, but it always skips it and boots to my old xp on the hard drive.

i have tried xp and vista - so i know its not the disks. Hard drive is connected in Sata 1 and DVD is connected Sata 2. Here is my bios options, maybe someone can spot it out and help me:

You may need to set IDE Delay to 15 seconds for the DVD drive to be recognised although that's normally only required in AHCI mode.

I think you still have to "press any key to boot from CD/DVD drive"

tried at 15sec delay, no boot to cd, lef it at that put sata mode from IDE to AHCI, i got a disk read failure error, press ctrl+alt+delete to restart, had to do a hard reset for that.

i notice when it passes the post menu it says at the top something like no device drivers found or something, then it searches the cd or hard drive. do i need to install anything on the motherboard? or should the options i have be enough?

the onboard sata clearly works if it picks up my sata hdd, and bios detects sata dvd.

It just wont boot my xp cd :(

pamy, i dont get that press any key option, i know what you mean, but nothing like that shows: click here

Press Y

dont know when to press y, so i kept pressing from restart all the way through past POST up to the cd detect point, nothing - it looks like it want to find the cd, but i cant hear it revving up or anything. the dvd led flashes and thats it.

Also i put sata mode back to ide, delay is at 5 secs (should i put back to 15?)

Your picture shoes Boot from CD: Perhaps you have to type something after:

  I am Spartacus 12:04 08 Jan 2009
