Cannot Boot from Windows 7 OEM DVD using SATA DVD Drive Version X15-46008-01 on CD but X15-46438-02 on Case ! (Don't think that's issue though is it as it DOES boot in my normal PC so nothing wrong with DVD Media itself and DVD Movies play fine on new build with temporary Vista OS

Ignore my profile as regards specs as this is a different new build.

I've isolated the problem to the following points as regards the DVD:-

The new build (Vista on at moment which *DID* install from DVD)
_______________________________
1. Will NOT boot from Windows 7 OEM Genuine Full DVD
2. Will NOT even browse files when booted successfully into Vista Desktop
3 Runs Vista fine no issues even in AHCI



My PC (had it for years)
____________________
1. WILL boot from DVD
2. WILL explore files / upgrade from Within OS (Win 7 RC)


I DO have USB Keyboard / mouse

I HAVE played with BIOS Settings including Boot Order, enabling USB Mouse / Keyboard Support and IDE v AHCI

I am stumped

FIXED IT!!

Updated the Firmware on the DVD Drive which did the trick (Also updated BIOS but it was definitely the DVD Drive Firmware Upgrade which did it
