Bios doesn't detect SSD as boot drive

Hey guys,

 

today I decided to upgrade my parents pc with an SSD and do a clean windows install on it. Everything went fine, I installed their office 365 etc, until I removed the HDD. When i tried starting the pc it gave me an error telling me to 'reboot and select proper boot device.' but in the bios it doesn't detect the SSD as a boot device. In the 'miscellaneous' options it did show up. I restarted the pc multiple times when the other HDD was still connected, but when I removed it it stopped working. 

 

I hope anyone can help,

Set your M.2 drive (in the BIOS) to SATA or NVME depending on which you're using.

You're installing windows with the HDD as the boot loader.

So when you try to select the ssd as the boot drive, it failed because there's no boot loader in the SSD.

Redo the windows installation without any other disk plugged in.
