You set LBA mode in the section of the BIOS that lets you configure your
individual hard drives, not in the boot device order section. Usually this
section shows up in the first BIOS screen that shows you what
drives/devices the BIOS has auto-detected. You can usually highlight the
drive you want to configure and go into more advanced settings (but how to
do this varies according to the BIOS).
