Hard drive not showing up in BIOS boot options

Hello, I am using a ASUS U47A laptop wit Windows 7 64 bit premium. I installed Fedora 17, or shall I say tried to, and then at the end of installation it requires a reboot, so I did. But here is the problem. The BIOS will no longer recognise the hardrive as a boot option. It detects the harddrive fine as in port 0, but it does not show up in boot priority list. The only way to boot is through the CDROM in port 2.

The hard drive can also be detected from a live desktop and all files accessible, I just can't seem to boot into the windows or Fedora system on it.

Does anyone know what the issue might be and how can I fix it?

Thank you!

Disable UEFI in your BIOS. Or else install Linux with UEFI enabled.
