So, I bought a new motherboard, ram, and processor. When I turned the computer on, it loaded right into my bios. For some reason, it wouldn't load into windows, only in bios.. I tried changing UEFI to the other one, and no luck. My SSD does not show up in boot option priority for some reason.. When I go to storage, I can see my SSD and hard drive.. I tried unplugging the hard drive and just loading the SSD, but still no luck..
I7-10700K
GTX 970
16gb Ram DDR4
Msi MPG z490
250GB SSD
1TB HD


I turned fast boot on and reloaded, and it instantly loaded into windows.. I'm nervous if I restart my computer, it's going to lock me out again.. How do I get my SSD to show in boot priority?

Is this the solution to my problem?
There is no way to DEFINITELY predict. But using an old Windows install has a high probability of failing.
If you are concerned about losing something, the safest thing is to buy a new 250 or 500GB SSD and do your new Windows install on that. Then you can add your old drive(s) as data drives and copy off them if needed.
