X79SI and the dreaded "A bootable device has not been detected."

MOShe

I had issues with UEFI booting a while back, but was able to resolve them, but now I'm in situation where a HDD failure has left me stuck in the "A bootable device has not been detected." restart loop, and I'm unable to get into any of the BIOS options.

I've tried using the back to bios button, I've placed the jumper on pins 2-3 and left it off, I've removed all storage devices.

All I want is a foolproof way to get back into BIOS or reset the BIOS, but nothing seems to be working.

There's a good chance that I've missed some small step, I'm now at the point where I've become a bit too frustrated...

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Did you try removing the power and CMOS battery for 20-30 minutes or adding a bootable device, like USB drive?
