The problem I’ve been having is that after the bios screen I get a black screen with a blinking white cursor. I pop my windows dvd into my drive and change the boot priority to cd rom, thinking I can do a system restore to a previous date.
I have five physical hard drives. 4 1tb drives in a raid system for storage and a 500gb hdd drive to run OS and some games on. What I found out is bios has one of the storage drives having boot priority, but I cannot chose the hdd drive that the is works on.
After start up I press F8 and it gives me a larger list of drives to boot from, including the hdd drive, so I am able to boot up that way without issues. But do not know how to make this the priority drive is bios.
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Can't be, the boot drive is user selectable, or else it wouldn't be there. Did you try all keys ? Arrow keys and tab key ?

the only options bios gives me for a boot drive is cd rom, removable disk, and a storage drive. Not the hdd drive

what are calling a 'storage drive' and how is that different from 'hdd drive' ? Aren't both the same ?
