You enter the BIOS or Basic Input Output System by pressing the F2 or Delete key during start-up.

If you don't have a motherboard manual you can download it from the ASUS site. I was there looking at your motherboard a minute ago.

It might be your MB doesn't recognise the new drive so a BIOS FLASH my be needed, go to your MB website and check the compatibility with your MB.
