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 banghead.gif banghead.gif banghead.gif banghead.gif

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

Welcome potatological to BC community. :)


Have you resolved the BIOS error message? Did you try loading default settings and making sure that the hard drive (presuming  SATA) is enabled under your BIOS utility menu.

What is the value in the BIOS boot screen for LAUNCH CSM?


Is the OS Windows 8?
