Hello everyone, I've been building a system at home and have run into an odd issue that I cant seem to figure out. I really hope one of you can help me out as I'm stumped.
 
 I've built my system with an Asrock X79 Extreme 4 motherboard, a Samsung SATA DVD burner, a Samsung 500GB SATA III SSD and I would like to install Windows 7 64bit on it. I'll provide a full component list below this post.
 
The computer boots up into UEFI BIOS just fine, while there I can browse connected hardware and see the DVD drive connected to a SATA III port (SATA3_A1 if you want to know the ports name). However when I go to boot from the Windows disc in th DVD drive I cant see it listed under boot options. So far I only have two, Boot Legacy or EFI compatible ROM. Neither of which do me any good. For some reason I cant seem to select the DVD drive as a boot location.
 
Any ideas how I can get windows up and running? Oh I almost forgot the BIOS version is P1.80
 
Motherboard: ASRock X79 Extreme4 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
 
RAM: CORSAIR 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMV8GX3M1A1600C11
 
CPU: Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80619i73820
 
GPU: MSI Gaming N760 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card
 
HDD: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD500KW 2.5" 500GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
 
Sound: Creative Sound Blaster Z 70SB150200000 5.1 Channels PCI Express (x1, x4 or x16) Interface Sound Card
 
ODD: SAMSUNG DVD Burner SATA Model SH-224DB/BEBE - OEM
 
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
 
 
Thanks for any help you guys are able to provide!

You motherboard can see the optical drive.  What is the boot order in the BIOS?  I recently built a PC where I had to explicitly list the optical drive as the first device in the boot priority to get it to install the OS.

Try putting SSD and the optical drive you want to boot from on SATA3_0 and SATA3_1.  Try again.

 

Main thing, put drives you need for a clean install on a SATA port that is native to the Intel controller.

Thanks for the replys. I'm not sure what the boot order is DJBPace07, it doesnt show me a list. I'll try and get a screen shot if I can.

 

I'll try and change the ports dpunisher, wish me luck.

It's usually the simple answers that work. This fixed the issues I was having thanks so much dpunisher!

Hello,
Maybe some people still need a hand on this issue.
To solve the problem, go to www.tsstodd.com and search for the new firmware of SH-224DB.
New firmware version is SH-224DB/SB01
Hope this helped.
