Maximus V motherboard
i7 & windows7pro
new Patriot Pyro SDD for primary
setup windows on it fine.
Somehow though, the BIOS is still being run off my old HDD.
Not real good with BIOS stuff so keep it simple please.
How do I switch this over?

go to the tab with boot priority menu, and it should have a hardrive priority menu too, set your SSD first

BIOS talks to the motherboard directly and does not involve a hard drive or SSD at all so you are not running BIOS off a hard drive.

Did you unplug the extra hard drive while installing Windows on the SSD?

No I didn't unplug the old HDD when I installed windows on the new SSD. I am sure windows installed on the SSD though. The only real problem I am getting is it won't let me format the old HDD because the ASUS menu i get to by hitting 'Delete' on start up will not let me take the old HDD off as a backup boot drive. So when I try to switch permissions to format it says its a boot drive.
