    I just bought a Gigabyte mobo, and other various items to build a PC. This is my 6th PC I have ever built, and this is the first one I have ever had this issue. I have the IDE cable plugged into the DVD-Drive, and I put in the OS CD, then I boot it up to the DVD-Drive and I get the DISK BOOT FAILURE: INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.

    I have tried 3 different CD-Drives and to no avail. What could be causing this?

    If you need more info I wcan provide it.

    Boot order in BIOS or another BIOS setting?

    I set the CD-rom to priorty in the boot order. I have an IDE optical drive, and a SATA HD. It recognizes both in the POST

    Try disconnecting the SATA and see if the DVD will boot.
