Hey I had a regular 1tb harddrive and then I got a SSD, added it in and installed windows 7 to 10 on it, kept the stuff on the other harddrive because im still using some things that were on it, now when i boot up it says cannot find operating system and i have to use F11 and choose to use windows 10 from volume/disk 1 and whatnot to boot into windows 10, i'm pretty sure i installed it onto the ssd does anyone know how i can fix booting up because currently i have to use that work-around to even get on my computer. Not sure why it cant just boot from the SSD when i choose it from the selection or why it cant just find it automatically

The easiest way is to remove all but the SSD, then install Windows to it.

Then, if you want to use the other hard drive, just make sure that the BIOS/UEFI isn't set to boot from it (you can also mangle the boot files so that it doesn't boot, but it's easier just to remove it from the boot list).

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
