    ACPI (Power saving mode) ACPI - Advanced Configuration and Power Interface
    Power On and Wakeup, devices which can, buy their activity start computer or wake up from sleep mode.
    RTC = Real Time Clock, allows it to set time of day for computer to start up.
    Restore on AC power loss, What happens when power to computer is cut. Last state = If it was on at the time to turn it back on when power is restored. Other setting may be to stay off even when power is restored (I would recommend that), includes using switch at the back of PSU.

    On Board SATA Controller = That's controller for SATA ports where you plug in your disks (HDD. SSD or ODD), with it disabled those devices don't work.
    On board SATA mode = should have IDE, RAID and AHCI modes, last one best used with SSD drives. RAID: What is RAID storage? Webopedia Definition
    On board USB controller = Provides USB support.
    Legacy USB Support = Lets you use USB1 and 1.1 devices.
    On board audio and LAN (Local Area Network) which provides support for your wired network connections like with wired Routers etc.
    On board LAN option ROM, allows starting computer over network signal: LAN Option ROM

    Except for that RAID part (if you don't use RAD array) everything else is correctly set for most cases. If you have SSD it should be set to AHCI and if HDD, IDE mode.

    I edited my settings in bios "onboard sata mode" to native ide from raid,saved the settings and rebooted and an error of "inaccesible boot device" apeeared.
    I changed the setting back to raid and it was booting up normally.

    Btw, "if you don't use RAD array" in your comments. What is this?
    I have a computer with a internal 1tb hdd and an extra hdd slot and i put my old computer 350gb hdd into that.
    At bootup it says both of the disk is "Non-raid disk". Again what does that mean?

    Raid = Redundant Array of Independent Disks, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID
    A way to connect several drives to work together in different configurations.If you don't have at least two identical disks it doesn't make sense to use RAID.

    Try changing your sata controller to AHCI Mode.
