    windows 10 boot's new (empty) hard drive


    Hi, yesterday I installed an internal 3tb hard drive and I formatted it everything was alright. But today as I turned the pc on at booting the windows 10 logo apaered but the circle under it didn't. I restarted the pc and in the bios boot menu, I selected my original hdd, witch contains the OS and it booted fine Now if I turn the computer on I always have to manually select my original hdd otherwise the os will not start. How can I tell windows 10 to boot from the original hard drive?

    Boot into Setup (Bios) go to the Boot tab, Move the OS drive to First boot device. Move the empty HDD to the last boot device or out of the boot order all together. Save and Exit.

    I already tried this solution but it did nothing. What worked is, that I plugged my new hard drive in the port where my DVD player was plugged in and I plugged the DVD player in the other Port, I don't know why but this fixed the problem. So if anyone else is having a problem like this...don't plug your new hard drive in the last available port.
    But thanks for all the help, much appreciated!
