I have a recently purchased PC, built around a P5N-E SLI with an Intel Core2 Duo E7200. Iâ€™m running XP Home (SP3). Powered by a 500w supply.
The optical drive is an Optiarc AD-7201 DVD Writer (listed in the Bios utility as SATA 2). I have an issue with booting Windows when a disc is in the drive. Basically it will sometimes stall and not fully load Windows, as the PC continues attempting to read the disc. Ejecting the disc then allows Windows to fully load.
I have tried changing the Boot Device Priority, but several variations has made no difference. Does anyone have any ideas?
BIOS version is 02/19/2008-C55-MCP51-P5N-ESLI-00
