Hello, I'm trying to do a clean install on a new mSATA drive(mushkin Atlas 120GB) on a new Lenovo y580 with windows 8 from a dvd. The problem is that my optical drive is not showing up in the boot list. It does work while the OS is running. It is listed under the installed hardware in the BIOS.

Any help would be appreciated.

In the BIOS is the SATA port for that drive set to "Auto detect" or is it seen as an optical drive? If it is set to "auto dectect" then try changing it to CD or DVD drive and see if that helps.
