Hi Manny729,

What are the drive settings in your BIOS. I suspect that its about your storage controller drivers.

When SATA is set to AHCI, some SSDs do not show in BIOS properly (on the device list boot screen) but only in BOOT order or Prmary BOOT menu. SSD should be connected to first SATA port that is set to AHCI mode.
