BIOS options greyed out

Hi all! I have a HP ProBook 4540s and accessing the BI0S, many options are greyed out.. and cannot select them? For example in System Configuration -> Device Configurations - all the options are greyed out except "NumLock on at boot". I want to select IDE for the SATA Device Mode but is greyed out and cannot select?

Re: BIOS options greyed out

I noticed when I log into BIOS as Guest I have full rights, when as admin most options are greyed out. Problem solved but that is strange on the permission side of it.
