I cleared my hard drive. Im currently using Linux Mint. I accidently messed up my bios folder so i cant auto-boot, so i have to use linux on a flash drive (usb). This works fine except I have no space to install steam. I have a perfectly good hard drive with 300 plus gigs. How do i get steam to install onto the hard drive, not my USB? I can see the hard drive in my folder, but it is empty. And even if I do get it to instal on the hard drive, when I install games FROM steam, will they just go into my full flash drive?
An answer would be much appreciated.

Why don't you just install the OS on the hard drive?
What is a bios folder?
What is "auto-boot"?

Do you or did you have some version of windows installed on the hard drive? I ask because of the message you report: its missing BOOTMGR
You can get more information on the system drive(s)/partitions, boot files and more by downloading the boot repair software from the link below and run it and select the option to Create BootInfo Summary. Do not try to make any repairs. Follow the instructions to install it and run it from Mint.
