Windows overiding boot order when trying to upgrade to NVMe SSD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok, I'm trying to upgrade from a 500G Sandisk SSD to a 250G Samsung NVMe SSD. I followed the instructions for Samsung's Data Migration software and successfully cloned my OS and my data from the old SSD to the new NVMe SSD. I've uninstalled the old SSD from my PC to ensure that my PC boots using the new drive, however I still want to wipe the old SSD and use it as a game library. But when I reinstall it in my PC so that I can wipe it Windows Boot Manager overrides my UEFI boot priority and boots from the old SSD, disabling the new one.

 

How can I edit Windows Boot Manager to boot from the new one and not the old one so I can wipe the old drive?

Manually select what drive to boot to. On my mobo if you hit F11 it let's you choose what drive to boot from.

I have, I set the new drive as #1 boot priority and windows boot manager still overrides it.

That's only the boot priority part that you set in the bios, no?

 

You should be able to pull up the boot menu and manually select what drive to boot from each time.

I know what you mean, but I can't find it in my bios. F11 just takes me to the ez tuning wizard.

Try F8, and if that doesn't work, maybe F7.

Hit F8 on mobo to get into boot selection menu, then select your NVMe SSD. 

@DocSwag Asus mobo's usually have F8 to get into boot menu.

Switch to advanced view. So during POST hit DEL or F2, then whichever button corresponds to advanced (F7 I think), navigate over to the "Boot" tab, scroll down a bit and set both boot option priority and boot override to whatever the new drive is.

I found it in easy mode where I can boot straight from any drive and it works fine if the old drice is disconnected, but if it's connected it still gets overridden. Currently I'm booting straight from the new ssd and it's first in boot priority, but if the old drive in plugged in it overrides it all.

F8 was right, but if the old drive is connected clicking the drive I want to boot from just makes the screen flash once. If the old drive is disconnected, clicking on the drive I want to boot from boots from that drive.

I've done that, somehow the old drive still overrides all of that. :/

Just confirming, but you're on windows 10, right?

 

If so, make sure that boot options are set to UEFI only. I once had an issue with Windows that had to do with it being set to legacy and UEFI instead of just UEFI.

Go to your bios. I think the settings should be under boot configuration.

Found it, but switching it to UEFI only just makes the old drive my only option for booting. At this point, I'm tempted to just get a usb/sata adapter and plug the old drive into my laptop to wipe it.

Random question, do you know if windows boot manager is installed on the SSD? Or is it installed on an HDD?

It must be on the old SSD, because I don't have an issue if it's disconnected.

I suspect it's due to having fast boot enabled. Disabling should allow you to access your bios with the old drive in. Also, I'd suggest trying changing which sata port the drive is plugged into.

What happens if you disconnect the sata drive and just try to install windows fresh onto the new ssd? That should guarantee windows boot manager makes it's way over.

 

Also side note, before you do that, if you boot from the sata ssd is there an option in windows boot manager that let's you choose different drives? Both my hdd and ssd have a copy of windows on them so when I boot up windows let's me choose between the two.

This is easy...

 

Boot from the win10 installer

when you get to the install page, hit install windows.

now you will see all your hard drives in your system, at this point hit SHIFT & F10

a command prompt will open

 

Now type in

 

diskpart

 

now type in

 

list disk

 

you will see all the physical drives listed that are in your system like so

 

Disk 0     online     250GB

Disk 1     online     500GB

Disk 2     online     2000GB

 

 

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE CORRECT DISK, I CANNOT EMPHASIZE THIS ENOUGH, YOU ARE GOING TO WIPE ALL THE DATA SO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE 500GB SSD YOU WANT TO WIPE CLEAN

 

note the Disk number of the old SSD you want to wipe clean

 

MAKE SURE YOU SELECT THE CORRECT ONE, YOU CAN TELL BY IT'S SIZE - as you said it's a 500GB SSD

 

now type in

 

select disk 1  (or whatever number the 500GB SSD is you want to wipe clean)

 

in the window it will say disk 1 is now the selected disk

 

WHEN YOU ARE CERTAIN YOU HAVE THE CORRECT DISK

 

type in

 

/clean

 

Now power off the system

 

You can now boot to your NVME drive and once you get in to windows go to computer management to initialize and format your 500GB SSD so you can use it.

 

 

OF COURSE  IF YOU ARE UNSURE THEN DO NOT DO THIS, IT REQUIRES KNOWLEDGE AND IF YOU SELECT THE WRONG DISK AND /clean IT YOU WILL LOSE ALL DATA ON THAT DRIVE

 

SO DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK!
