    Weird error
    Has any one come across an error whereby the bios is configured to boot correctly from SCSI for a SATA drive ( Maxtor 120 GB) and system shows " boot from cd" .when booting from cold.
    After initial reboot and any subsequent ones , it boots normally
    Mobo is gigabyte GV7VAX Ultra.
    The second , third boot options are disabled.!

    Realised theerror !
    Original config was IDE 1 ...nil IDE 2 ....DVD+zip
    IDE3.....DVDRW , SCSI Primary...SATA Drive,
    USB 2.....second standard h/drive.

    Changed DVDRW to IDE1 to prevent problems with recognition with burning software.

    Althoughnot selected for boot option,system was looking to CDRW for boot up.
