    BIOS shows 'CD device; not DVD device'?


    I put in a DVD burner in the slave position, but BIOS calls it a 'CD' device, and will not boot from it with a DVD disk. Windows maps it as a DVD player, and plays DVD's in it.

    Do some mobos not support boot from DVD drives, where Windows WILL play and burn?

    Did you check the manufacturers website for a bios update?

    are you sure the drive is before the disk in the boot order in bios?
