I deleted my hdd from the BIOS

Hello,
So, I made a pretty stupid mistake, and I'm not sure how to fix it. I was trying to make SpinRite work from a CD I burned, and I ran into a divide by zero error. I have no idea why. I googled it and found somebody who was claiming that they had the same error and that they were able to get past it by disabling their hdd from their bios. So, I went into my BIOS, under the Advanced Tab > selected IDE Configuration > AHCI Port2 (I think) > SATA Port2 > and changed the setting from [Auto] to [Not Installed]. Of course, when I rebooted with the boot disc, I received a No HDD installed error. So, when I tried to retrieve the HDD, I cannot find it anywhere in the BIOS. Port2 has completely disappeared. Anybody know how to retrieve it?
I'm running an ASUS K60IJ notebook with the latest BIOS flashed (I believe it's version 2.06 or 206).

    Boot into the BIOS and Load Default then Save & Exit = Yes. Reboot.

    If that fails then insert your Windows DVD and boot again...pressing F8 repeatably until the Windows 7 Recovery options appear; select Startup Repair.

    The BIOS default settings was a bust, but the Win 7 Recovery Disc fixed it! Thanks!
  4. Glad to hear!

    That procedure can also come in handy if you need to run System Restore.

    Good Luck! :)
