Seen something like it - the drive is not detected by the BIOS, but later when there is win installed, a simple driver might force the operating system to find the new device (although the BIOS can't).

I still don't have an explanation for that. What you could try - either download win through ftp to the laptop from your other pc and later on install dvd drivers, or try to find a BIOS update for the laptop.

This should work, hope it helps
