Hi,

So I have a SSD that has been working fine. Now I formatted the PC with a fresh install on the SSD. For some reason I had a LOT of problems installing windows 10 on the SSD like the error "Can't install windows on device 0 partition 0". I used clean all in CMD to fix that.

So then I could install windows, no problems. Now I can't see the SSD in Boot options. But when I boot from the HDD that I had to install windows 10 to to be able to start windows, I can see the SSD inside windows and use it with no problems.

So main issue: SSD is not recognized in Boot options/bios but is usable through windows on my HDD.

Tried reinstalling and such, no luck. Also updated bios.

Worth saying - the SSD is NVME and since I updated bios the settings were lost, NO idea how to set it for NVME boot

Please help..

For the OS install on the SSD, you needed to have ONLY the SSD connected.
Since this is a brand new install, redo it.

I installed it without the HDD the first 2 times I tried.

Worth telling is that the SSD is NVME and I updated bios so the settings were lost.. that might be it but idk how to set it for NVME
