Windows 7: Booting from SSD: How to force it in bios

Booting from SSD: How to force it in bios


I made a major change where I installed a new motherboard from Gigabyte. At the same time, I re-installed an old hard disk so I can use it for data storage .

Problem is, that old hard disk had a Win 7 installed and it boot from this one insted of my SSD drive. The SSD drive was already in my machine before the motherboard swap.

I look up in my bios boot sequence and the SSD does not appear. But it is available from the list when I press the F12 for the boot selection.

I'm not an expert and I'm a bit (maybe a lot) loss with all these aptions.

Any help appreciated
