SATA optical drives?

Amd / Opteron 170

Specs: Win XP Pro SP2, s939/2GB
I have a liteon ihes206 bd player and a liteon ihas422 dvd player, they both have a sata interface. When I have it installed in my dfi lanparty lp nf4 sli-dr motherboard it picks it up in bios but I have trouble booting it with windows cd. So I ended up using my pata dvd/cd drives to install windows. Once I got windows up and running I disconnected my pata optical drives and put my sata optical drives in it will not boot to windows. I have checked my bios many many times configuring it correctly and still it always just hangs right before booting into windows. If I use my pata optical drives or without any optical drives I can boot into windows. I have currently 3 sata hdd on my nforce sata controller and 2 sata optical drives on my silicon image sata controller.

Try swapping the optical drives to the onboard controller and put the non boot drives onto the controller card.
