    Question GA-MA790X-UD4P Won't Boot OS

    I'm building my first computer so please bear with me. When I turn on the computer I get the POST screen, I can get to BIOS settings etc. However, when trying to boot Vista Ultimate 32-bit from DVD, I get a screen listing the PCI devices, followed by:
    Verifying DMI Pool Data.....................
    Boot from CD/DVD: [nothing] cannot type anything, enter does nothing. waited as long as one hour once.

    The only thing I can think of is a bad DVD. Possible, but that seems unlikely.

    Unhappy Re: GA-MA790X-UD4P Won't Boot OS

    I have tried pressing keys, but nothing happens. I've tried Enter, y, n, and mashing keys. nothing. I know the keyboard works because I can use it in the BIOS setup. I am trying to boot from DVD as there is no OS currently installed.

    Hi juice8j
    Did you go into bios and enable the sata contoller?
    It should be set on-chip sata as Native IDE
    Just like the picture in your motherboard manual shows. (Integrated Peripherals page48)
    Your hard drive may or may not need to be partitioned first.
    If you were trying to use AHCI you may need to unplug the computer. Wait 20 seconds. Clear cmos with any piece of metal by jumping across the clear cmos pins. I used a screw driver when I cleared cmos. Be sure the jumper is taken back off. Plug the AC chord back into the power supply. When you boot go into bios setup and set it to native ide. Restart and go back into bios and check that the bios sees the hard drive. If you have any questions let us know. We will try to get back to you as soon as we can. Oh yeah! if you have Vista before the sp1 You may want to install it with 2GB of memory then put the other 2 GB in after sp1 updates installed.
