I bought a HP 8100, 250g SSD, 8G ram, Win.10, all is good except when it boots, it boots from the optical drive, I have to hold F9 key to get to the HDD, I tried changing it in Bios to boot from the HDD, but still will only boot from the drive. Any help appreciated.

Did you save your changes in the BIOS?  In some HP BIOS it isn't clear that you need to do a specific step to save the change.  If this the case read the bottom of the screen for what you need to do to save changes.

Thanks, I didn't save any changes because I didn't make any, not too clear on reading anything from the screen bottom, didn't see any options.

My mistake, says boot from USB, not optical drive, I disconnected amy exterior 1G exterior drive and it booted ok. Any ideas appreciated.
