Hi! A few months ago I cloned my Windows 10 machine to a new Samsung 500GB SSD. Since then I've run into a few things that I just can't figure out. My guess is that they may be related.
Problem 1. Currently, I can't select the SSD as my primary boot device. Whenever I restart, I have to select it manually from a list of boot devices. If I try to change the default boot device, the Samsung is not listed as an option. My Mobo is a Gigabyte P67A-UD4-B3.
Problem 2. I upgraded to an SSD primarily so that I can run the OS and applications like photoshop from it. I currently have Photoshop loading from the SSD and save my working files to a 3TB internal HDD connected via SATA. The problem is that despite the files size, Photoshop has been very laggy and freezes for a few seconds quite often when trying to do something. I moved some of the psd files to the SSD to test if it was just the HDD but I often have the same issues.
Here are some other things that may be useful:
*intel i5 processor
*Average psd file size 10-100MB
*I have 3 internal drives and 2 external
*I used MiniTool partition wizard to clone my C drive. (It actually still shows up in my explorer as the C drive)
