How do i boot into my new ssd

Go to solution Solved by BobVonBob,

Did you move the new instance of Windows Boot Manager to the front of the boot order or just the new drive? To boot into Windows you need to put the Windows Boot Manager entry at the front of your boot list, not the drive.

I cloned my boot drive an put it on an ssd but now I’m in my bios and it wont let me boot into it and i changed the boot priority too but it keeps putting me onto the hard drive. I have a msi z370 tomahawk MOBO, should I unplug the hard drive altogether then reboot???

You can do that, or look up the key that you need to hit to manually select the boot device.

@BlueScope819 so I can see your post

Just find out what key lets you choose the boot device, then select your SSD
