Is the DVD set as the primary boot up device? Also, if you press either F11 or F12, one of those will take you into the boot selection screen. From there, you should be able to select the DVD as the boot up source and be able to install Windows from there. If you need more help, let me know.

I tried with another DVD player and there it works, yet this drive working (I tried all settings: riderless + master + slave + cable select) ...

I have another question. I installed 4 RAM sticks 1GB each. There are 2 x 2 identical with same frequency.
in bios the total memory is good (4096MB) by cons start this displays 3072MB OK => Windows 7 x64 it shows 3GB.
If I change the Memory Hole BIOS setting to be activated to start I 4096MB OK and 4GB Windows 7 x64!
Can you explain?

I'm kind of confused by your phrasing. From what I get, you're saying that the BIOS reports 4 GB no problem, but when you boot into Windows 7 X64 you get it saying you only have 3072? Am I right? If so, is your graphics internal (meaning it's built into the motherboard)?
