    I have an EPoX EP-9NPAJ SLI board and it doesnt want to boot from the CD.

    I have no clue what is causing this problem.

    I have already tried a swap of the CD drives.... and different BIOS settings... double checked to see if the CD was good...

    no clue as to what is causing this problem.

    Anything else i should be thinking of?

    It could be the CD drive itself. I've seen drives that take so long to start spinning that the BIOS times out and goes on to the next drive in the boot order.
