I recently acquired a new computer (dumpster diving treasure) and am experiencing some issues. I installed a new Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB MZ-7TE120BW and installed Windows 7 64 to the SSD. The install went fine, but when I go into BIOS the drive does not show as 'bootable' drive. (It does show in BIOS, but just not as bootable.) When I force BIOS to manually boot from the drive I get an error message along the lines that it's not 'bootable media'. I can force BIOS to boot from something called "Windows Boot Manager" and when I select Windows 7, it boots just find from the SSD and I experience no problems.
I would like to have BIOS recognize the SSD as a properly bootable device.
The computer is a pretty basic Asus CM6730:
Intel i5-3350P 3.1GHz
Asus BIOS v. 0404 (not sure if this means ANYTHING to anyone)
Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB MZ-7TE120BW
As I said, I find it odd that it is capable of booting Windows from the drive, but won't let me set it as a default bootable device. I can provide additional details as requested. SATA is set to AHCI.
