    Hi guys, I don't know if this is the right topic to post this thread in since this is more of a "Help thread" than a discussion one, if not, then a mod or admin can please change the thread to it's right spot.

    My problem is this:
    -I have a drive with an operating system installed and for some reason it never boots up, it always asks me to insert a bootable device, and when I go to boot options, neither of the drives (be it USB with CD or HDD, or the internal HDD or SSD drive) appear. I'll post pictures to make it easier to explain:

    Boot options (as you can see there are none, only to enter the BIOS)

    BIOS settings:

    Can you confirm the drive has not failed by putting it in or connecting it to another machine?

    How was the drive prepped before? (RAID?) Did it work before? When you say never boots up is this an "old" drive from another computer?

    Problem solved, just had to flash the bios by removing the battery for a few minutes and everything went back to how it was.
