Mmm, is the CD-ROM unit still visible/accessible within the OS? If
not, you can try to connect it to port IDE1 (same as the hard disk) as
slave, that could make a difference (buy a longer IDE cable if the
devices are separated enough) or extract the optical unit and use it
with an external USB case.

A quick Google search points to a known problem for that board:

I finally fudged things. I set the bios so that it recognized the cdrom
and installed Debian Linux. I then rebooted, F2ed to the bios and
changed it so that it could find the hard drive. That worked. Since I
don't have to boot to the cdrom very often I can live with it. I'm
tired of fooling with the problem.

Yes, the cd unit is visible within the OS. Everything is working fine. I
installed an additional drive on the same IDE port as a slave. With
ATA/IDE Configure set to Legacy the bios recognizes both drives but not
the CDROM. Just as before. Once booted, everything works fine.


Bye

It's indeed weird, but at least now you know a slave unit conneted to the
master IDE port is also detected and thus you can use it to boot from
there, should needed.
