The CDROM was showing up in the POST in all cases.
It turns out the problem (as I outlined in a followup post) resulted from a
combination of issues.
1) This board uses a Marvell PATA controller, so the relevant driver must
2) Unless the "Configure SATA as" setting in the BIOS is set to "AHCI" the
PATA controller won't be found. Sounds a bit odd and counter-intuitive,
but that's what's happening. Originally this item was set to IDE; the
other option is RAID but I haven't tested that.
