    Default AsRock Fatality P67 Professional - IDE CD-ROM Boot Issue

    I just finished installing the Fatality P67 Pro in my existing computer running Win XP. Upon initial boot I upgraded the BIOS to ver 2.0 via the instant flash in the UEFI. I plan to install Win 7-64 bit but when trying to configure the boot order to CD-ROM so that I can boot to the Win 7 disk, CD-ROM is not offered as a choice. Only my floppy or SATA HDD.

    I have two IDE DVD drives in the computer (NEC-3520 and Lite-On SOHD-16P9S). The machine tries to boot into XP but blue screens and tries to reboot.

    I also get an A2 code (IDE detect).

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    This pic is from an Extreme4 z68 so maybe the BIOS is a bit different. The highlighted area is for selecting a cd/dvd device. I don't have 2 so my choices there are the installed drive or DISABLE. I would expect your BIOS to allow you to choose which DVD device.

    I hate to say it but you might just want to buy a SATA dvd drive, from online vendors they cost all of $20.00 with free shipping most of the time.

    Dear Dherrick,

    We use Lite-On SOHD-16P9S IDE CD-ROM to do the test, but we cannot see the symptom.

    Please kindly refer to below suggestions for testing.
    1. Load BIOS default settings.
    2. Re-install the IDE CD-ROM to try.
    3. If possible, please kindly change SATA ODD to check whether the symptom still occur.

    Thanks!

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD Emily
