I have recently swaped the computer burner from one of my computers to the other. As well as the burner, I have installed the hard drive from my other computer and the graphics card. But, now my dvd rom/burner is not accessable. I assume that this is a driver issue or a bios/cmos issue, but I have no idea how to resolve this as i cannot load a cd or dvd to reformat. How do I resolve this? Any help is apreciated.

i can not enter bios at boot. the display reads that, "the cd/dvd rom drive can not be located press enter to continue." then, the os on the newer hard drive boots up. i have tried various way to mount the drive in the terminal but all attempts are unsuccessful.

i have previously connected the hd's to the mb port and, "no hd was found." maybey the port is bad. when i install everything to the other computers mb, it will not complete post. i am a bit stumped.
