|DVD player is not the problem, tested and working. Can't remember if the keyboard ever worked from a cold boot. I would say when i first built it and installed the OS it worked, as didn't make a post then. |
I've managed however to get boot off the DVD. Did this by disabling all boot devices except for the DVD; then after the first part of OS install, added the HDD back to the list of bootable devices. Working fine for now, as not needing to get into the bios again.
There is however that issue of the the PC hanging on bootup on the bios screen for about 30 seconds. But since its a HTPC, 99% of time it boots up from sleep. So don't see that problem very often i can live with it.
