My current MSI MB dead after having done a bad flash. To get my pc back running, I purchased a different make MB. The Asus P8Z77-V Pro. After the transfer of my hardware to the new board, I cannot access my bios if my scandisk SSD drive which has Windows 7 installed if it is plugged into any of the sata ports. I just get the Asus logo and it ask me to press F2 or delete key to enter bios. However, my keyboard is not responsive to any key press.

If I unplug the ssd HD and start it up, I am able to access the bios. Has my ssd drive failed or is there a setting in bios I have to enable to read ssd? Do I need to reformat the SSD card and do a fresh OS install? My other standard HHD which contain files are seen by the MB just fine. It is just the SSD I am having trouble.

Looks like Windows isn't working.

Boot into Safe Mode (F8 per http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/windows/advanced-startup-options-including-safe-mode#1TC=windows-7) and do a Computer Repair.

If that doesn't fix it try a Windows re-installation.

Set my dvd drive to boot first to reinstall Windows. But, whenever the ssd drive is plugged into the board, it loads up to the Asus logo and stops there. Pressing any keys will not go into bios and I can't continue any further to load from dvd drive.

Fixed.
It turned out my ssd wasn't bad afterall. The MB was having conflict reading the ssd with previous Windows installation. The answer was to reinstall, but I couldn't do it as easily since the boot up would freeze my keyboard when the ssd was detected.

How I got it reformatted was to enable one of the sata port as hot swappable. Insert the Windows cd and boot from it. When it ask to install in which drive, just plug the ssd in the enabled port and reformat the drive. Now, the MB will be able to read the ssd without any conflict. Install windows as usual.
