Hi Just built a computer from scratch and everthing seemed fine. It ran for two days normally. But now won't boot from SSD (Intel 330 series 180gb) with windows 7 64bit installed. when I enter the BIOS something called UEFI is selected by default. No matter what I try to do it won't boot from the SSD

I cannot get rid of this pre selected UEFI option, if I let it run it gets as far as 'Device mapping table' then hangs at Shell>_ . Obviously waiting for a prompt of some kind. It won't let me escape from this option

It arrives at the same prompt if I don't enter the bios first, how do I get my computer back to booting from the SSD? PLEASE

The motherboard is an MSI 970A-G46 with an AMD 970 & SB950 chipset

Thanks in Anticipation

Hi and welcome to TSF the bios is UEFI see here and check the manual for how to work with it MSI Global ? Mainboard - 970A-G46 it will be in downloads

Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.

Hi - my backup system uses this board with a 975 Phenom/HD6770, and i also have an SSD running, make sure AHCI is enabled in your bios and you are using your SATA 6 plug not a SATA 3, and you may need to re-toggle the boot priority menu also within the bios (eg make your PC boot to your SSD first). UEFI is just your bios identifier.
