Hi, When flashing a BIOS, you would need a bootable diskette (or CD) with basic DOS and the ROM .bin or BIOS update files plus the flashing software. In the CMOS/BIOS setup, you have to instruct the computer to boot first from the floppy diskdrive (or the CD as the case may be). Then run the flashing software/application and type in the filename of the new BIOS. Most modern motherboards no longer uses jumper switches to allow/disallow BIOS writing/update. If for some reason there are jumper switches, perhaps we can confirm if you would post the brand/model/version of the motherboard/computer. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.

To reset the CMOS the easiest way is, remove the motherboard
battery for ten minute then install it again. It will clear the CMOS. Then reset
the CMOS/BIOS setup, date/ time etc. Another way to clear CMOS is, reset the CMOS
Jumper in motherboard.
To detect your hard drive you can try to check by change the hard drive cables. Change the port in motherboard. Check the BIOS setup and reset it if need.
