New GA-965P-DQ6 motherboard but DVD-RW rom cannot boot

By burton155 ·
I recently replaced my motherboard with a New GA-965P-DQ6 motherboard,and a Core 2 Extreme QX6700. it has 1 IDE, 1 FDD controller and 6 SATA slots. i am using a 650 PSU from Antec and a Big Typhoon cooler. From preparation to reboot into Windows XP i was told to reboot from the Windows XP Home edition install CD. I hooked up my gigabyte DVD-RW as master and my IDE Western Digital 80g 7200rpm as slave, to the only IDE slot - also changed the pin setting behind the drives. then when i turned the PC on, i went into BIOS setup and set it to boot from CDROM first (there is only 1 selection for optical drive). However, for some reason, the startup just couldnt recognize the DVD-RW and couldnt boot from it. Can someone please help as i am stressed and befuddled (tried switching master and slave but it didnt work)
