    Check the SATA connector on the DVD drive and the motherboard. Try another cable if it doesn't work.
    Also make sure no USB sticks are connected, they can mess up the booting thing.

    OMG! ;) SATA cable of course, the cable connecting your board to your DVD drive, which I told you to check...

    I'm stupid, sorry. eter the BIOS and enable USB keyboard support, that should fix it. The DVD drive is fine, but at that stage in the booting process the system does not recognize an USB keyboard if USB keyboard support is disabled IIRC.
