I’ve been experiencing issues with my Pioneer K06 slim DVDRW drive that is connected to my HTPC. Being a slim laptop drive I have attached a sata adapter which is detected in the bios, and allows me to boot from the disc, but when booting into Windows 7 x86 & 64 the drive is missing and the boot time takes a long time.
I have tried all the tutorials in regards to missing DVD drive in Windows 7 but none of them seem to work. It takes a lot longer to load windows then usual boot time and if I insert a disc during the boot sequence before windows starts up it sometimes detects the drive and boots into windows a lot faster with the drive is detected.
Has anyone experienced the same problem and manage to find a solution to fix it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I have run out of options and have absolutely no idea.
Below are two snap shots of regedit and device manager
