I finally got my SSD to work properly but currently I have W8 installed on both the SSD and my old HDD. When I take the HDD out, the computer boots to the SSD no problems, but when the HDD is in, it always boots off the HDD.
I've gone into BIOS and had a look around and there were essentially two options:
Legacy and UEFI (Default)
When I choose UEFI, there are only two options for booting. Windows Boot Manager and Network boot. When I put Windows Boot Manager on top, it automatically boots to the HDD with no option to set the SSD as boot priority 1.
When I choose Legacy, it gives me a lot more options including USB, CD Drive, HDD and SSD. However, if I choose the legacy boot mode, it will give the error message "Operating system not found" no matter what.
I've read around about how to change boot options and all the articles just say to go into BIOS and change boot priorities, but I don't see how it can work for me.
Anyone have an idea?
Note: I chose MBR instead of GPT when initializing the SSD for the first time but I didn't think that would be a problem.
