That doesn't make sense. If the OS is on the SSD physically, and you can boot off of it, it should be working. Are you talking about the drive not being in the boot device's priority list? The only thing that matters with Windows 10 is that the primary boot device is Windows Boot Manager. Can you share more information. What is the make and model of your SSD and your HDD? Which slot did you populate the SSD in?

Did you make sure you installed the OS using a bootable installer using Windows Media Creation Tools?

Make and model of the motherboard? Version for your BIOS for the motherboard?
