Hello,


Hi everybody,

I have two optical drives, one is CD ROM and the other is DVD/CD ROM.

The first is slave, and the other is primary. Those two drives installed on the primary IDE. And the the hard disk is installed on the secondary IDE.
My problem is when I have booted by using a boot CD from the DVD/CD ROM, I found that CD booted. However, when I have tried booting from CD ROM, I found that CD didn't boot at all.
Also, I have entered to BIOS and check up that both are installed.

If CD ROM were broken down, then why when I reach to Windows and then open the drive. Then, put a CD in it, I found that cd opens in both

I would be highly appreciate it if you could help me

Is the CD drive included in the boot order?

try setting the CD to the first boot device and try again.

Thanks a lot
But there is not an option to choose only CD-Rom in theBIOS
There are only
DVD/CD ROM
Flash
Hard disk
-----
So, I think as long as I chose the DVD/CD Rom the first device computer boots from, the computer will boot from the drive in which a cd is. In other words,
if a cd is in DVD, then compute will boot from DVD drive
if a cd is in CD, then computer will boot form CD dirve
