I've had no luck booting my trusty Acronis 8 recovery CD on an Abit BH6 build. It's the 1.02 board version with final 'SS' bios. I've read similar CD boot reports online about trouble booting from CD with this board from years back. The typical reccommendations were to make sure the CDR was set to AUTO in bios, the CDR set as master on it's IDE channel, and of course the CDR first in the boot sequence. No luck in any configuration I've tried so far - even with the CDR as the *only* device connected. At POST it shows it's trying to 'Boot ATAPI-CD-ROM' but after 30s or so it times out. The CD boots off of other retro machines. I don't have another CDR handy to check if it's the drive - but it's working fine in every other respect.
