SSD not showing as boot option

Recommended Posts

So I got my SSD in today, It reads it in my bios but it's not showing me a section on where to boot to unless I manually boot into it. In other words its not giving any option to make it my main boot drive. Any help here?

 

White sata ports are 6gbps right?

You should be able to set in your BIOS the default Boot order for your drives. You need to put the SSD first.

Make sure your SSD is connected to the grey SATA port marked SATA6G_1

Boot and enter BIOS

From main EZ Mode Window mouse click on Advanced Mode (or alternatively hot key F7)

In Advanced Mode select the "Advanced" tab

Now scroll down to SATA configuration and click on that

Does your SSD show up as being connected to SATA6G_1?

If the answer is yes, exit out of the Advanced tab menu and select the Boot menu

Look down to Boot Option Priorities

Set Boot Option #1 to your SSD

Save changes and exit

I think it's on Sata g_6 or something but I managed to install windows 8.1 to it and it's still blazing fast, whats a good program to test it? I actually like having the option to select to boot into windows 7 from my 2nd drive.

If you have w8 plus w7 installed on your pc it will always ask what os to boot to. That's the point of a dual boot  system.
