Guys can you help me out? I bought a m2 ssd for my laptop and I want to install the OS. However the thing is, I can't go to my BIOS because of forgotten password. So I can't change the boot order of my laptop. The boot that I had right now is:
  1. USB
  2. HDD
  3. SDD
The question is, Can I still boot on my M2 SSD where my OS is installed even though it is not the prioritize? I will format the HDD during the windows 10 installation so it would not have the OS. The laptop model that I have is Acer Aspire E5 476g-38mh. Thanks for the help in advance. :)

You can try using this website to find the companies reset code. Type in your bios password three times. Then a message should appear saying system disabled. Under that there will be a number given. Go to this web site and look up the tech's password with that number to enable the bios. Hope you can find it. BIOS-PW.org

Try tapping the f12 button when booting, which should give you a boot menu; it doesn't change your boot order, it's just overrides the bios for a one time boot choice.. You can also disconnect the other drives, leaving only the ssd to boot from.
