Did you try that DVD drive all alone on the IDE cable as master (if on 40 conductor cable) or CS (for 80 conductor cables)?
Dell XPS 600 Dual core plentiun d 3.0ghz 800mhz
Windows XP Home SP 3
Bios Dell a09
2 sata hardrives Windows installed on one and 2Linux distro on the other.
ide dvd rw+/-rw
My dvd drive is a LG model; gwa 4164B it is listed in the drive section of the Bios.
Not listed in the boot sequence.
The sequence is cd-rom, sata hard drive, floppy drive, and ide hard drive (not present)
I am trying to boot a linux dvd distro but what ever I try it boots to grub then to selected windows.
Conversation with LG they said the dvd should be in the boot sequence.
Are they giving me correct information.
What can I do or change to correct this.
