Hi all if anyone can help Me I'd be grateful .....
So I changed out CPU, MB, Ram, and using the 2 drives in my system.
Installed windows via a usb dvd rom onto the NVME
all went well. Drivers installed etc.
My problem is that I set the boot order to
NVme
SSD
Yet when booting it can only get to windows after it detects the usb dvd rom which has the windows disk still in, then continues to load windows from the NVME
Could some please show me the settings in bios so it boots from the NVME and into windows, which I installed onto the NVME.
Thank you for any help

ps.. Been a long time lurker on TPU. Its my home page. grins

You might have to redo the Windows install without any drives plugged in or disable through BIOS except the drive your installing from - too. Windows may of stuck the boot manager on the 1TB SSD.

Windows 10 on EFI (which it definitely should be) uses Windows Boot Manager to boot.

Should be something like UEFI: Windows Boot Manager

Installed from DVD might be the problem: highly recommend using the Media Creation Tool to create an install USB stick (it will delete everything off it...shouldn't be bigger than 32 GB capacity but no smaller than 8 GB). UEFI boot the USB stick and it should automatically switch to UEFI: Windows Boot Manager when it restarts during setup.

So boot order starts out as UEFI: <name of USB stick> and ends up becoming UEFI: Windows Boot Manager where it stays.


DVD tends to only do legacy/MBR install. It's a mega PITA to make it UEFI. USB defaults to UEFI so, simple.

Your UEFI should see a Windows boot device, otherwise the Windows installation might've failed somehow. By the sound of things, it seems to have failed anyhow.
Technically you need to make a GUID USB boot drive to install Windows on an NVMe drive. I guess that should work if you roll your own disc as well, but I haven't used discs for years...

ok I will make a usb boot drive and go from there. will let you all know how it goes. Also I will disconnect all drives except for the NVME.
thank you for advice/s

Update.... re installing windows using a usb boot worked. After installation I plugged my other drives in and all working great !
As this rig is my very first AMD setup, Ive got a lot to learn, coming from a old 2500k sandy .
A BIG thank you to the members of TPU who are here to help others in need.
