    I wanted a SSD for Windows and applications while storing files on a separate disk.

    In installing the SSD I am noticing the UEFI Windows Boot Manager instead of the option of booting straight from the SSD itself.

    Before I start loading everything up from my backup I wanted to make sure Windows is installed properly for optimal performance.

    Can someone please explain? Thanks in advance.

    Easiest way to tell is to disconnect all drives except for the SSD. If the computer boots with only the SSD connected, then you are good to go.

    It is the only drive that is currently connected with the exception of the 32GB MSATA drive on my motherboard and Windows is booting up fine. I'm just not familiar with "UEFI Windows Boot Manager" and don't want to deal with any headaches down the road. It is not even giving me the option in the Boot Mode settings in the BIOS to boot from the SSD.

    I guess I am wanting to know if I have installed Windows correctly on the new SSD. Is this the one and only way it should be booting up or is there something I missed in the setup that would allow me in the BIOS to boot from the SSD instead of through the "UEFI Windows Boot Manager".

    Thanks again in advance.

    Hi,

    Sorry, no but that's wrong.
    That only shows when bios is set to CSM mode. The boot manager entry allows to boot in bios mode aka legacy mode.
    It should not even show up unless " showing invalid boot entries" or something along these lines isn't checked in the bios of the machine.

    More than likely your SSD is set up for UEFI booting - which will be the Windows Boot Manager entry in bios. When you select the boot from SSD option, bios is looking to legacy boot the SSD which it isn't set up for. This is assuming your boot files are actually contained on the SSD and not on another installed hard drive - which we can tell from disk management.

    Don't worry about that, it has nothing to do with what you're experiencing. Just ignore it.

    Hi,

    I suspect that's what it does.I suspect that's what it does.
    Easiest way to find out is to disconnect the new SSD and boot the machine. If it runs Windows then quite likely it'll always boot from it and the new SSD is basically a storage drive. Unless you can change things in bios that is which I doubt as this looks like a tablet with a Msata soldered to its motherboard, right ?


    Cheers,

    Here is a screenshot of the disk management.

    I'm seeing conflicting results on this. Before I start reinstalling all of the applications and recovering my files from backup I want to make sure Windows is installed properly and I don't run into problems down the road.

    I just had my Dell XPS 8700 crash last week with a "no boot device available" problem on the original HDD.

    I installed the new Samsung EVO 850 250GB SSD with Windows 10. The boot priority is set at "UEFI Windows Boot Manager" and the SSD is not an option currently. The SSD does show up in the BIOS under SATA 1 just not in the boot priority list.

    You should be good to go. Your computer is booting from the EFI system partition on Disk 0 and loading the OS from the 3rd partition on Disk 0.

    So it is installed properly even though there is not a SSD option in the BIOS boot priority?

    Is this just the the proper way since a SSD loads much quicker versus a traditional HDD and doesn't need to search for a particular drive?

    It's just the way your bios is setup, but it's fine just the way it is. I don't see any reason to change anything.
