Drive is detected in BIOS but won't boot to windows

I put a new MSI motherboard in my system and got it to post. And I can see that the BIOS is detecting both of my SSD's. But no matter what I change I can't get it to boot windows of my 256 gb sata SSD. And before you ask. Yes, it has windows 10 installed on It. It's the same drive that was in my old system. Anybody know how I can get it to boot?

Is the SSD an M.2 or 2.5 inch SSD?

 

If it is a M.2 SSD check your motherboard manual to see to make sure you did not install it in an NvME M.2 slot. Because this will not work with a SATA drive.

 

Was your old system using legacy boot or UEFI boot?

 

Was secure boot enabled?

 

You will need to enable/disable these settings to get it to boot.

it's a 2.5 inch sata SSD. I don't remember if I was using UEFI boot or legacy on the old system but I have my BIOS setting set to UEFI+Legacy. since the only other option is just plain UEFI. and Secure boot is disabled.

 

I can see the that BIOS detects the drive because it says it's name under sata port 1. But I'm not able to select it as a boot drive for some reason.

I see in your pic that CSM is not enabled. You would want to enable that for legacy boot options.

I tried it on csm. still nothing. and I confirmed that the drive still boots fine in another system
