SSD Not Showing Up as Boot Option

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys. I just installed a new CPU and motherboard into my computer, but when booted into my motherboard's bios, there was no option to use my SSD as the boot drive. Keep in mind that all of my drives were detected.

new motherboard likely rejected your current windows install. you'll need to install windows fresh again.


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 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, Seasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained

Will that erase everything I have already stored on my drives currently?

Only the SSD. Make sure to unplug your other drives though. Plug in your drives to the old motherboard, back up any files you want, then go back to the new motherboard with the SSD only and reinstall Windows.

I'd suggest looking at your CSM setting (Compatibility Support Module), which is usually under the "Boot" tab of modern UEFIs. If CSM is disabled then it would prevent you from booting on legacy devices (e.g. MBR partitioned drives).

That still doesn't seem to be working for me. Do I need to reboot back into the BIOS? Nvm, I got it. Thanks for the help.
