cannot change boot priority among hard drives
Originally I had a small solid-state hard drive on this set up. I added a non-solid-state hard drive later. Recently, my solid-state drive, the C Dr., became too full to upgrade certain software programs such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I purchased a second solid-state hard drive.
I "mirrored" that second solid-state hard drive. To make sure that Windows was operating appropriately, I rebooted and hit F10. I then showed the new solid-state hard drive. Everything booted perfectly and the new solid-state hard drive was noted as the C Dr.
When I rebooted into bios to change the hard drive boot order so that the new second solid-state hard drive would be the first in the priority, when I highlighted it and exited from it,it still showed the original solid-state hard drive as the first hard drive.
I have never had this problem before. I now have to go into F10 every time I boot into my computer and highlight the new solid-state hard drive.
Thanks so much,

After I made the post, I decided to reboot and try again. After looking at my auctions more closely, I realized I was not using the +/- option. As soon as I did the new hard drive went to the top of the priority.
And yes the C Dr. is short for C:\ drive.
I can't thank you enough for the quick response. I'm glad I found this forum. I'm going to ask a nether question with a new topic. Probably the wrong forum but I'm going to ask it anyway since I have the feeling you all are pretty savvy about everything both hard and soft drive.
Much appreciated and have a great weekend.
