 Share

okay so i just installed a m.2 gen4 on my msi mpg z690 carbon wifi motherboard, i went ahead and clones my windows drive from my ssd to my new m.2 , the drive shows up in windows and bios but i can not select the m.2 drive as a boot as there is no option for it, even if i disconnect my windows drive and try to boot up there is no option to select m.2, can anyone help me?

You probably need to reconfigure the boot configuration/partition to the new drive.

Also clone implies you remove the old drive before booting.  you cant have 2 boot drives at the same time at standard configuration at least.

My prior was a 2.5 both are gpt because the boot drive is gpt, raid is not and i use easeus to clone 
So i did clone only the boot partition to new drive so ill try to clone the whole drive this time and see.

That's the problem imo, you need to clone the efi partition as well or else you need to manually create an efi partition on the new M2 SSD.

yeah, i always just cloned the whole drive, never an issue,  windows doesn't even seem to notice it.
