    I want to reformat by computer but BIOS doesn't register my optical drive, but it works fine in windows. I have 2 hard drives that are attached to the motherboard with sata cables, but my optical drive is on an IDE cable. my motherboard is a BioStar H55 HD.

    I would really appreciate any help to get my BIOS to register my optical drive so that I can reinstall windows.
