Sounds like you have an option in your BIOS to 'halt at everything.' Meaning if there is anything missing or possibly wrong with the system your BIOS will stop making the user press F1 so that they notice was is wrong (or possibly wrong).

If nothing is wrong with the system then just choose the option of 'halt on nothing' or something similar in your BIOS.

ok when i swap cables pc boots fine..the problem is that dvd player[D] display wrong label ,it plays cd/movies,,but it shows [E] ..E is dvd burner...
DVD BURNER plays ok no problem and it shows "E" ,,no problem..

i bet what i need is to change label drives,problem is don't know how to..

pictrures shows wrong,when swapped cables both plays.

picture shows "right" in proper position..but when reboots i got
"Secondary hard disk drive 0,1 not not found at bootup"
