Sata port on my board detects all the sata hdd but hangs the system if sata dvd drive is already attached. Dvd drive works only if detected on device manager though my computers properties. If the dvd drive is attached earlier before boot up then system hangs up and i need to remove that drive and connect after computer starts. It creates a problem while installing the new windows after formatting because it hangs up as soon as i start the system.

Boot to a live linux cd the way you want to connect everything and see if it works that way.
