Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks Sterling14, but I have the last and latest BIOS for the board (version "SS"), at least according to the research I did. The "1.0" is just my motherboard version, not the BIOS revision.
Perhaps a bios update can fix this? If your board is using Bios V1.0, and there's newer versions, you might want to try and update it. Make sure you get the right one though. If you don't you could ruin the motherboard.
Yes, the date/time stay correct, and yes, BIOS does remember the boot order I set when I reboot and check the changes. Where do I check in BIOS for whether it sees the CD-ROM? If I go to the section that lists my IDE drives, I see only my HD (C drive). Can a CD-ROM use IDE, or could it be SCSI (or something else)? I've never had to install one so I don't even know what the options are when you buy one.
The absence of the BIOS will not harm the motherboard, but it will render it useless. You can purchase the EEPROM with the proper BIOS from the manufacturer it you do have a problem flashing the BIOS.
Does the CD-ROM remain as the first device in the boot order after you go back into the BIOS after making the change?
Does the date and time remain correct.
How is the CD-ROM appearing in the BIOS, CD-ROM master, slave?
Have you tried uninstalling the drive in the Device Manager and reboot the computer? This will force the installation wizard to recognize the drive as new hardware, and it will search for the proper drivers for it.
