    Confused with booting operations (HDD+SSD)

    So tech people.I am confused.You see first of all in most settings in my UEFI my SSD is recognized except one in Storeage Configuration if I remember correctly.Anywho ive done some settings here and there and when i boot it asks me if i want it to be from HDD or SSD. I Boot from SSD and it says insert proper boot device or restart blah blah.Then i restart and choose my HDD and it boots , asks which volume i want , i choose the default one and it boots you all reading these say , well whats the problem.first of all i do not know how to move the prefix "windows boot manager" in front of my ssd so that i will enjoy boot times from my ssd.secondly Click image for larger version.

    Your uefi partition is on disk 0 not disk 1 which is drive c. It needs to be copied to c and that drive should be disk 0 so swap cables

    As stated, swap the Data cable for the SSD and the HDD. This will put the SSD on SATA port 1 on the motherboard and make it Disk 0 in Disk Management.
    Apparently, You left your HDD plugged in when you installed Windows to the SSD. Since you already had an EFI partition on the HDD, Windows did not create one on the SSD, it used the existing one on the HDD, so if you unplug the HDD, Windows won't boot since the SSD doesn't have access to the boot file.
    Unplug the HDD leave the SSD plugged in, and boot off of the Windows installer, Choose your Language, then press Shift+F10 to go directly to the Command Prompt. At the X:\Sources prompt type C: and press enter, now type DIR and press enter this will list all of the directories on this drive, . If you see a Windows directory, you are in the right place. If not, type D: Enter then DIR etc until you find the right drive, it may not be C: . Once on the drive that has Windows type
    bootrec /RebuildBCD and press enter. This should create a Boot file on the C: drive. Restart normally.
    If that doesn't work, you can try recreating the EFI partition UEFI boot fix (after HDD to SSD migration) | TnT Service / Conseil

    im beggining to believe 2 things are happening regarding me not seeing any difference from when i was using the HDD
    1. the most likely is that my system is not low-end therefore i do not see any difference.
    2. the least likely is that since im not booting from the ssd , the entire disk is not being utilised for reading or writing stuff.
    also bump
    thanks :x
