Hello,
I'm not really understanding your problem. Does the OS boot up when the bios is set to "user HDD mode"? If so, why are you trying to change the bios?

Does it really matter, or is this just something that's bugging you? Perhaps the builder set it up this way, in which case it should work fine. If it matters that much to you, you may just have to redo your machine to fix it. May not be worth it.

Note: Please edit your previous post and get rid of the Software Licenses that are displayed.
