    Window Boot Manager Issue - Will not boot without selecting F12

    Greetings y'all!

    My title is my BLUF (bottom-line up front). If this belongs in a different sub-section of the forum, sorry in advance.

    I just did a clean install of 10 Pro from a UEFI formatted thumb drive, using RUFUS - did that because I upgraded to a PNY CS2211 480GB SSD. Everything works great once loaded!

    The problem seems to be my laptop can't use the Windows Boot Manager my laptop is pointing to in UEFI settings. I first noticed the problem while installing it (after initial reboot during install). When I hit F12 for the One-Time boot menu and select WBM, it boots just fine - no issue.

    Maybe this has everything to do with the fact I did not make the change prior to install from Legacy to UEFI?

    Very likely, I think.

    The victim is a Dell Latitude E6510, circa 2010-ish. BIOS is up to date (A16 version) and all other drivers/updates are good.

    Appreciate any help rendered!
