If your system BIOS has the option to adjust the Delay IDE Initial time, try increasing the time (in seconds) to some value greater than 0sec till the problem is fixed. If the BIOS doesn't have this option, try increasing the boot-up time by disabling Quick Power-On Self Test and enabling the Boot Up Floppy Check option.

Sorry to hear that. I have a 52x CDRW drive that works perfectly with all Windows OS's (from 98 to XP). But it doesn't let Windows Server 2003 load unless I put a CD (any burned or pressed CD) in it. Isn't that cute? I just bought it 3 months ago so there is no firmware update for it and I am not sure if this annoying problem will ever be fixed. I had to move it to an XP system of mine.
