Windows 7: Boot Drive not listed in BIOS / Empty Boot Tab in Sys Config

Boot Drive not listed in BIOS / Empty Boot Tab in Sys Config

Hello,

For some reason my boot drive is not listed in UEFI BIOS where you choose the boot drive sequence, still the computer boots OK from that drive. I checked the System Config and the Boot tab is completely empty and I'm unable to make any changes there. When I try to run BCDEdit it says "the boot data config store could not be opened, the system cannot find the file specified". I ran SFC, no problem there. Is there any way to fix it?

Are you saying the SSD is not showing in the bios, but yet your system boots just fine ?

I find this impossible

Post a shot of Disk Management.
