Self-built machine.

ASUS A78M-E mother board. Rev. X.0x 
1401 BIOS, upgraded from 0401
Boot drive is a Patriot Blaze SSD, C:, also have a WDC hard drive, F: for files and several programs.
3.70 gigahertz AMD A4-6300 APU with Radeon HD Graphics
8 GB memory
Upgraded to Windows 10 from Win 8.
 
Whenever it tries to reboot, it can't find my SSD and I get Black Screen with message."Windows Boot Manager. Status 0x000000F. Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible".  I hit F2 and go to BIOS 1401, you can see the Boot Priority SSD drive is not shown in the start path. That's funny, it was there before. If I hit F8 I can select the SSD and boot from there. This has happened on and off for quite a while. 
 
The boot selection window seems to re-arrange the order of preference on it's own.
 
I have gone into the Advanced Mode and reset the BIOS so it looks for the SSD first. It seems to be corrected, but for some reason it goes back to selection the HD F: drive instead of the SSD C: drive.
 
Any ideas?  Thanks.

This is the screen that comes up when I hit F8. From here I can select P1, the SSD, to reboot the machine.

What exactly do you mean you can't find the SSD in the start path? You should have a boot order and it sounds like the SSD isn't at the top of that order and maybe you have a USB drive plugged in.

No USB drive plugged in. If you look at the second photo, you can see the three drives, CD, HD and SSD. In photo #1, at the BIOS home screen at the lower left corner, the SSD is missing in the available selections. It should show all three, then you would use the mouse to drag them around in the preferred boot order.

Okay - solved it with help from Tom's Hardware.

 

In BIOS go to Advanced>Boot menu. In advance bios, boot menu disable all boot options then scroll dow past bottom of the page, click Hard Drive BBS Priorities, then boot option 1 YOUR SSD SHOULD BE THERE. Click back then click boot option 1 and Your ssd should be there.
