I recently bought a new home built PC with a 1TB Seagate HDD installed and working (Windows 7). I had removed the Samsung HDD from my old PC (Windows 10) with the intent of using it as a second hard drive in my new one. The first thing I did was to format the Seagate, then I cloned the Samsung to the Seagate. So now I have 2 identical drives, both with Windows 10. My problem is that I cannot boot from the Seagate drive, which is the one I want to be my primary drive since it it brand new and faster than the Samsung drive. In the BIOS (Asus) I can see the 2 HDDs. The SATA 1 connector is plugged into the Seagate drive. The SATA 2 connector is plugged into the Samsung drive. The SATA 3 connector goes to the DVD drive. I can read and write data to the Seagate. However, in the BIOS it does not list the Seagate as an option in the Boot Order. I only see the Samsung drive, the DVD drive, and an External Toshiba USB drive that does not have an OS installed. So I need to find out why the Seagate is not bootable. I'm guessing I wiped something out either when I formatted the drive or cloned the Samsung to the Seagate. What do I need to do? The Seagate has a single NTFS partition. Thanks very much in advance for the assistance.
