  1. You have gone to far if you are at the option to set boot order. The BIOS load is in the first 1-4 secs depending on the setting in the bios. Sometimes you have to hit the appropriate key before the screen even detects the video card.

  3. as soon as you press the power button start pressing the delete key repeatedly until the bios comes up. usually F2 works also.

    Asus uses the delete key.

    th only thing that pops up is windows boot manager
  6. Does the hdd also have a windows install on it? I would disconnect the hdd and then get into the bios and change the boot order. Then reconnect

    Pull the hdd and leave the ssd in.
    Power on and go into bios.
    Select the current SSD as the boot drive and set all others to none.
    Reconnect hdd and you should be good.
