Hello guys its my first time i am posting here because i have a problem with my laptop, i am using hp dv6 1340ev and i desided to add an ssd OCZ VTX4 128gb together with hdd caddy so i can remove the optical drive to add my old hdd for storage, i fresh installed my old windows 7 on the ssd and i formatted my old hard drive all works good but the only problem is that when i open my laptop by default it boot always the optical drive (my old hdd) and i need all the time to change to boot the ssd( laptop first hard drive), i also changed the priority at the bios to boot first the laptop ssd and then all the others, but still the same... any suggestion on what can cause this?
That could be a BIOS problem, because the SSD is not recognized fast enough. Disable the CD/DVD-Boot option in the BIOS and try again.
Also you could look for a newer BIOS Version, if available.
i got the newest bios version i disabled the cd/dvd boot but still it boot the optical drive i am planning to move now the ssd on the optical drive caddy and put back the old hdd to the original position but i dont know if that can help or its waste of time.
ps: i moved the ssd on the optical drive caddy and the old hdd to the original sata area, and now the ssd boot first and the windows load with no problem but really weird......
I have exactly the same problem on my HP Pavilion G6, but i won't swap the drives... no way I've suffered enough installing them. Is there any other solution since setting the boot sequence in BIOS won't work at all. Maybe re-installing the Windows on the SSD drive should help?
