just bought a second-user board; gigabyte ga-8itx; intel 850 rdram. problem is the bios allows only floppy/ide boot options. no cdrom boot option. there are many things on the bios that i don't pretend to understand, but, is there anything obvious that i have missed in the configuration that has caused this phenomemon? or is the bios corrupt maybe? results so far:
boots ok from floppy
cloned hard drive (ghost) did not boot. cloned from scsi to ide. previously used for scsi/scsi and ide/ide copies...ok
sees secondary master/slave....dvdrom/cdr
sees all drives from 98se floppy boot disk
known good h/drive, dvdrom, cdr.
memory; 2x256 /2x64 samsung/nec p800/45..all ok
any pointers/ideas very welcome
ps. any info i have missed...please ask!
