|I'm having a problem understanding some of the details you give:|
"i have a cd rom drive and dvd drive. seperate."
What do you mean by 'separate'? Are the cdrom and DVD on the same cable or is the DVD just another drive you have laying around that you can swap into the system?
If both are on the same cable then disconnect one and try booting from the other. We want to isolate that cdrom on its own cable and try to boot from it. If we don't do that then we can't rule out some kind of interference with the second drive on the cable.
