OK so my brothers computer i build last summer had a strange glitch where it couldn't identify if anything was connected through USB unless it was plugged in during boot up. So i decided to upgrade his bios to the newest version, this indeed fixed the problem. Now a new problem, in the BIOS we cannot change the boot priority because it is not displaying the drives, but when we go to the boot menu we see the drive and select from it, and it boots into windows fine, and every time i try to change any setting in the BIOS and try to save and reset, the BIOS freezes,

Asus 990fx r2.0
AMD 8350 @4.0
SAPPHIRE HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 OC
BIOS 2301(asus)

Try resetting the BIOS to defaults. If you can't do this in the bios, there should be a jumper on the motherboard you can use to default the settings.

Well, you will lose any custom BIOS settings... but if the computer doesn't boot my guess is that it's worth it.

Do you have anything like RAID set up in the BIOS or anything else fancy?

It's only going to matter if you have something special set up in your BIOS. Otherwise it's just changing the BIOS back to the default settings. It's actual a common repair step for situations like yours and other BIOS related issues.
