Many times, as IT Pros, we take some things for granted. I just dealt with this issue with a PC that I've been using for quite a while--and have installed (re-installed) my OS on an innumerable amount of times.

I came to this thread looking for an idea on what may be causing this installation to be different than the rest.

Solution: Please check all connections to the motherboard.

In my case, the IDE connection was just slightly not connected to its jack. The CD Rom showed up wonderfully inside of the previous installation, but it was not connected well enough to be seen by the BIOS.

It's definitely an option...

Hope this helps!!
