    Always booting back to the BIOS?

    Full shutdown or reset. Can't get past the bios now. I was trying to solve the issue of having the BIOS see the third SSD drive as "Present"' in the bios and shown in the device manager. I had two NVMe drives working well and wanted to add in a third SATA SSD. It was not being seen either by BIOS or the device manager in win10. The NVMe drives are shown in the device manager. I decided to reset to defaults, do a save and reset and now cannot get out of the bios in booting. Always comes back to the bios window now.
    So I thought of clearing the CMOS. The crosshair viii hero manual says to use the clear cmos button "only when the system hangs due to overclocking". Where do I go from here? Will clearing the CMOS work and if so, power down, pull the plug, and hit the CMOS button after a minute or so, and boot back up?
    My PC was previously working very nicely on the two NVMe drives. This darn SATA third drive "not present" issue is hair pulling.
    I have been communicating with Asus support on this issue. Case number N200253701 if that helps any.
