Greetings all - Pretty much a newbie here.
I am trying to make a new SSD my main boot drive. I can boot off the old HDD and read/write to the New SSD, but cannot boot from the SSD. I’ve tried to read through other similar threads but none seem exactly like my situation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I am running Windows 10 on an HP 700-215xt, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
BIOS Version/Date AMI 80.19, 7/18/2014
BIOS Mode UEFI

I installed a Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB in my PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.0)
Updated driver from samsung
Cloned my HDD using Samsung Data Migration
Windows Disk Manager recognizes it. Screen shot below. Disk 0 is HDD, Disk 1 SSD
But BIOS doesn’t see it therefore I can’t select it in Boot Order.
I have tried:

  • Turning off Legacy in Secure Boot
  • Disconnecting the HDD and trying to reboot on SSD alone.
The screen says something like Media Found, then “Start PXE Over Ipv4”
