Cant install os on new ssd(locked bios)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently bought samsung 970evo to upgrade my laptop but when i went for fresh windows install i realised i have locked bios. Now i cant change boot order and im scared to use data migration software to clone os from hdd because i saw some people say u will need to go in bios to change boot order.

 

So now ssd is just sitting in my system along side 1tb hdd feelsbadman. 

 

What are my options will i fck up something if i try to clone os on ssd? Will it always try to boot from hdd?

Got a friend's PC? You can put the hard drive into a desktop PC, pull the data, then fully wipe it. Put the SSD in the desktop(after installing Windows), move all important data, then you're done.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - EVGA 1070 SC (but not for long ;] ) - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB riing flair) - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

 

Linux experimental recycled server:

Xeon X5670 (hopefully) - 12GB ECC - GTX 650 (possibly) - some SSD on sale (probably) - Gmac distro for that nice MacOS prettiness (It just works!)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

Install SSD

 

Clone the drive.

 

Take out HDD.

 

Only 1 boot option remains, so see if it boots. 

 

Then format the HDD and put back in.

 

Still only 1 boot option.

 

Done.

Yes.  As long as you don't format the HDD of course.
