Hello Alexander,

do you run
A.) SATA in Enhanced Mode
B.) SATA+PATA or PATA operation mode?

This problem I can reproduce when I set A.)+B.) in bios I
exactly get the same behavior of confused cd - drives.

Yes, I'm running SATA in enhanced mode with SATA+PATA operation mode and I have to. Running it in compatibility mode (PATA+SATA) I cannot boot from the SATA drive.
