    @captainfearless, your posts are so confusing that I can't know what you want to do, what you did or what is the current situation.
    A Adata XPG SX8200 is to be installed on the MoBo on a M.2 slot. No cables needed.

    If your HDD is still boot able you can clone it to the NVMe SSD using DiskGenius.
    An alternative is to do a clean install on the NVMe SSD. To do it you must boot from a Win 10 USB installation drive.
    What do you want to do?

    If you do a clean install of Windows 10 on the SSD disconnect the hard drive before you start. After Windows 10 is installed you can reconnect the hard drive.

    BTW, the first time I installed Windows 10 on the SSD I didn't disconnect the hard drive and had problems.

    I have been using an Adata XPG SX8200 Pro 2TB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD for my boot drive for over three years now with no problems.

    Sorry to cause any confusion here, looks like Iíve been confusing a 500gb HDD which I added years ago and forgot about, with the SSD mentioned on my invoice. Iím not sure itís even on board!, but thatís something for me to clarify with CCL. Either way youíve given me plenty of useful information, Iíll let you know the outcome.

    Megaherz your detailed instructions did the job.

    I've emailed CCL as to why they did not fit mt SSD!

    Can we see a screenshot of disk management to make sure you don't have the SSD installed?

    @captainfearless, you didn't follow my detailed instructions as you did not detached drive 0 before the installation on drive 1.
    Now you have the boot manager on the EFI partition on drive 0 when it should be on drive 1.
    As you have a 84 M unallocated space on drive 1, lets use it to build the EFI partition.


    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:

    diskpart
    list disk (it will list all drives. Identify the Windows drive number)
    select disk n (replace n by the Windows drive number obtained with list disk)
    create part efi
    list part (it will list all partitions. Identify the EFI partition number)
    select part m (replace m by the EFI partition number obtained with list part)
    format fs=fat32 quick
    assign letter=w
    exit
    bcdboot C:\Windows /s W: /f UEFI
    diskpart
    select vol W
    remove letter=W
    exit
    exit

    Shut down and detach (SATA or power cable) drive 0 and see if it boots normally. If it does, you should delete the EFI partition on drive 0

    The bigger question is what is disk 3 and are there any disks below it? Is the SSD shown in disk management?

    I didn't noticed. Very well observed.

    Disk 3 is merely a flash drive. This is odd as I 100% removed both the power and sata cables from the 2tb drive. The 500gb drive was the only one showing in bios.

    If I had the ssd drive it would be slotted into the motherboard and itís not there.

    Everything is running as smooth as butter, so though I really appreciate you pointing out the boot manager location issue, Iím wondering what the benefit would be of moving it. If likely to cause a problem I will absolutely move it.
