Hard Disk not present as boot option in bios
Please, I know this is a common error, but I`ve been working on it for 25hours, I`m desperate! I have an exam in 3 days and I need my computer!
I tried installing Linux Mint and Ubuntu and everytime I finish i get the error reboot and select proper boot device. I`ve searched for every solution I could find but none seems to work. Just please bear with me! I have an Asus ATTVM, 64-bit Intel i7 processor. I had installed windows 8, had it for almost 2 weeks, than it just stopped booting and giving me the BSOD. Intel Rapid Storage technology could have something to do with it. tried recovering with windows 8 windows 7 and windows xp disk but they just tell me that the disks, partitions are blocked. Or that they`re GPT and not MBR. I installed Linux Mint, and everything went fine but when I restart it gives me that error. In bios I can-t see and add my hardrive as an option, just dvd and usb. I tried repairing the boot with boot-repair, and everything seemed to go right http://paste2.org/p/2666886 but it still doesn-t work In bios it sais Windows boot manager (driver not present). I tried assigning the boot flag wit gparted but it doesn`t work. I`m not interested to going back to windows, Linux Mint seems perfect for me, but I can`t get it to boot and I haven`t slept in a long time.
I'm sure the hard disk is fine I can access it with a LiveCd and manage data and everything
If I were to format and install, how could i do so? what should i use, ntfs?
