Try having only one optical drive attached.

Are these ATA or SATA optical Drives?

If ATA make sure you set the master slave jumpers correctly.

Try different cables and different IDE/sata ports.

Make sure install disk is clean, no damage.

What is your boot order? CD first the Hard drive? HAve you installed? Is the drie you installed to the system and boot drive? Is it marked as active?
