    In the sixth picture the boot options should have the name of the drives. I don't know why the names of the drivers won't appear. I cannot select the drives to become a boot priority. I don't know which is which

  3. if you have connected your HDD then remove it and just try with the SSD only to the main HD SATA.

    You can check the below thread for the bios settings:

    1. Have you determined that your specific model MSI laptop supports a caddy to replace the optical drive? Some models will NOT support such. Did you check this out either in your MSI specs for your model laptop or through contact with MSI.

    2. We have also found that with some laptops/notebooks while the system will support the installation of this type of caddy, while the system will detect a SECONDARY (non-boot) drive installed in the caddy, the system will NOT support BOOTING to a drive installed in the caddy.

    The preceding may not be the cause of your problem but it should be checked out.

    Unplug the SATA cables for all drives and make sure the SSD is plugged into the first SATA port, and try to go into the BIOS and see if it is recognized as a boot drive. Don’t use caddy. If no, try another port.

    Good Luck.:) Peace.
