    Boot thing- i cannot run windows anymore, after conneted another SSD


    i think i just dont get the idea of how boot works, though i have years of experience with computers.

    I have an SSD drive (connected via NVMe) work fine up until:
    - i connected another SSD drive (via SATA), then it booted into other windows OP on the sata drive.
    - i disconnected the sata drive, expected to go back to the windows installed on the NVMe drive, and got the attached message

    btw, recovery tools doesn't fix it.
    windows version: 10
    I just don't have control over the ability to choose which drive it will boot from.
    More over, now i can't even recover my main (NVMe) drive.

    From that screen, press F8 to go to Setup. Load UEFI defaults (or similar words). Save and Exit. See if it boots okay now.

    SOME motherboards share the slot your nvme is in with some of the SATA ports. You may have connected your SSD to one of those SATA ports. Check the owners manual.

    Was there an install of windows on the SSD you connected? F8 or F12 (on most motherboards) at boot should let you make a choice of which drive. You might have to change settings in BIOS boot order to get it to boot from the nvme while there is a bootable SATA drive connected.
