What model computer or motherboard?

Is the drive detected by BIOS?

Finally, you likely need to set the SATA port for the optical drive to "IDE."

Make sure that the DVD drive is:
1- Seen by the BIOS.
2- Is listed in BIOS as bootable.
3- Is first in boot order before your hard drives.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

It may only show in the boot order menu as an optical drive or just a cdrom. If you're unsure, post back the drive options that are shown there.

Hi Silent,

you really should always supply the make and full model number of the device concerned when raising a query.

Was the dvd drive fitted when the pc was was first built or added afterwards?

You advise you are setting up W7, was there a previous os on the pc and could it boot from the dvd?

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
