That is what i mean remove the sata hard drive & plug in a ide hard drive if you have one & i know it might sound stupid but (( MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SET THE BOOT ORDER )) just check & make sure you have cd rom first & hard drive second..

well i only not long ago took back a sata hard drive because it was causing problems & now ive gone back to good old reliable IDE hard drives , So either send that hard drive back to the supplier & swap for a ide.. or wait & someone else might be able to help you
