I installed a M.2 SSD samsung 970 evo on my Nitro 5 and already installed windows 10 from a USB on it and is working fine but it wont show up in the BIOS boot list so i can set it to boot from it.
Could someone tell me why? thanks.

    Hi.

    If the installation medium is well done from the middle of windows 10 offered by microsoft, it would be to enter into bios and disable the secure boot, once you disable the restart with the pendrive connected, it should be seen in the bios.

    regards.

  • Hi,
    I think the Boot manager will recognise it after few restarts, What's showing as first boot device at the moment?

    Hi,
    Could you please try removing the original HDD and boot with only the SSD and see what happens.
    You could also try switching to "IRST with Optane " option for SATA mode in BIOS, if it's available. Go to BIOS screen, move to Main tab, check the options for SATA mode.

    ok - got it. My M.2 SSD has PCIe-interface and I need a SATA interface - which is a different one.

    I removed the HDD and got "NO BOOTABLE DEVICE" on screen. Also chance the AHCI to RST with optane and I got this screen

    I changed it back to AHCI and pc works again but the SSD still doesnt show up on the priority list.
  • Hi,
    Could you please post the Disk management snip, like mine.

    Hello,
    I had to start all over again. First I  clean installed windows to the original HDD again from a usb, then I formatted and deleted all partitions from the SSD using the program " minitool partition wizard". Then I cloned the HDD to the SSD using "easeus todo backup" and the SSD finally showed up on the BIOS, but HDD didnt. After that i just formatted the HDD. Hope this helps.
