    Which BIOS setting were you using? Try Legacy only since your install is MBR and not the modern UEFI as you don't have an EFI partition.
    I was using UEFI and Legacy. If i try to change it to Legacy only, its giving me a bluescreen.

    UEFI only seems to work. I guess thats the case since it is installed on my SSD which is GPT.

    You said MBR and I didn't see an EFI partition - feel like I'm missing something here
    The HDD is mbr (disk 0). The SSD is gpt (disk 1). Windows is installed in my ssd only currently, as i deleted the original partition.

    I don't see an EFI partition on either drive ..... am I just not seeing it

    Since changing to UEFI in BIOS now, do you notice any difference at bootup and in msconfig?

    Sorry, I don't follow that - what original partition did you delete?

    See method 2 if I'm following correctly that you don't have an EFI partition:
