Not Booting From SSD (After BIOS Change)

Hello,

I have a Sony Vaio E series. I have removed the optical bay and added an SSD and successfully cloned my HDD using Paragon Migrate OS to SSD. I can't get my PC to load off the SSD, despite making the changes to BIOS (see my attached BIOS screen shots).

I can also verify the following:

1. When I disconnect the HDD, the PC successfully boots from the SSD, but when I reconnect the HDD, the PC once again loads from the HDD.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?

Have you tried telling it to boot from internal hard drive?

Hi Neilsr,

I tried changing the BIOS to load from the internal hard drive (1st preference), but no it still loads from the HDD.

What happens if you disconnect or disable the HDD?

The SSD is a Hard Disk not an optical drive. Therefore you will HAVE to set it to boot from HD. Now if the HD from before is still in place and is seen as the primary then it will boot from that.
