Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+

here is my problem lets say my computer is shutdown completely a few minutes when I turn it on windows does not load. I can get it to load two ways. Way 1 I go into the bios and click the drive it loads right into windows and I have no problems. Way 2 I wait for power up awhile then press the restart button manually. Then it loads windows. Both ways involve me going into the bios. The funny thing is my SDD that I have windows installed on I'm pretty sure I have it sent to boot first. Yet.. I still have problems. One thing that concerns me is even though it looks like SDD is the only bootable drive (because it is) it looks like it's last on the boot order It does not seem like I change the p1 p2 numbering.

HI, Try connecting the SSD to the SATA port #1. If still the same, try a different SATA cable (one that came with the board).

I tested t a bunch of times many different ways and manually switching the wires did the trick. I guess because my main hardrive was on SATA 5 and all my other hard rives where earlier but I have not had a issue since.
