Intel Haswell i7-4770k
Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit
Adata SP900 SSD

I recently built my first desktop and am having issues with booting into the OS- The SSD I'm using is recognized and is set first in the boot priority, but the computer always boots into the American Megatrends screen, forcing me to press F1 which takes me to the BIOS. When I exit the BIOS, however, I boot into the OS fine. Does anyone know what setting I need to change?

What message appears before you press F1 to enter into BIOS. Also try disabling fast boot.
