I connected the SSD to my other PC and it shows up in BIOS no problem.
I was even able to boot into windows and format the SSD.
connect back to the biostar mobo and still doesn't show in bios
I updated the bios from the biostar website, but still no luck
I cannot find anything in the bios that says IDE or ACHI
Turn off and un-plug the computer; open the case, look for the round battery attached to the motherboard, remove the battery, wait 10 to 15 min for all power to dissipate (or press and hold the power button on the motherboard (if you have one) for a few seconds), then place the battery back in.
Don't do anything stupid before hand to build up static electricity (like dragging your feet around on carpet while wearing socks).
I emailed biostar for help from their website and have not received a reply so after 24hrs I sent another email asking for assistance and received a reply saying that I have to wait 24hrs for them to tell me why the mobo does not see the SSD, or any HDD for that matter.
