Booting from an SSD

Good day gentlemen.

Let us start with some facts.

I have an MSI GE62 Apache Laptop. Installed inside is an HDD plus an SSD.

I have cloned the HDD and placed it in the SSD. my computer registered the SSD and it can be seen plus be used once inside windows 10.

Main objective: to make my SSD as the bootable option from the BIOS.

Main obstacle: BIOS does not see SSD as a BBS bootable option. Note: BIOS does list SSD in the SATA information.

There is a BIOS update that I still have not made but I am still hesitant to update it since it is made for windows 8.1

Intel chipsets is fully updated from MSI website.

Any suggestion on what to do, I have tried my common troubleshooting options with no sign of help.

Many thanks fellow mates for any help.

You need that BIOS update IMO, should be able to see the SSD after that

Re: Booting from an SSD

I just finished updating the BIOS. it is up to date with the latest driver.

Result:still the same, unable to find an option indicating that I can select it as my boot up option.

Note: the BIOS identities my SSD in the SATA information tab.

Now what?

Im running out of options.

Is one of the drives replacing the optical drive? If the SSD is there then try swapping it and the HDD around.
