My bios isn't listing my hard drive as a bootable device. I have no idea what's wrong! When i start my computer up i get this message:

The current BIOS setting do not fully support the boot device. Click OK to enter the BIOS Setup. then in yellow text: Go to Advanced>Boot>CSM Parameters and adjust the CSM (Compatibility Support Module) settings to enable the boot device.

But not only do i have no idea how the hell to set those parameters, i'm completely unfamiliar with this Asus chipset motherboard and it's drivin me nuts!

Please anyone help me out? Took my computer to geeksquad and they told me i need to order a factory restore disk from Asus and i can't even call till monday to inquire about it! It's been a week of me trying to figure this out and i am literally

Thank you in advance for any help!

My computer model: Asus CM1745

Upgrades i have made: 520 WATT Dynex PSU model: DX-520wps HD Radeon 6870 GPU

Disconnecting from all other drives? Well i only have data cables hooked up to my DVD drive and my hard drive. Also, in Advanced Mode what settings did you have?

Can you connect your HDD to another PC via an usb caddy? Find out as much info as you can just in case it has expired?
