This is the answer, thank you :)

The only shortcut keys I use are those created for my recording softwares, any more might strain my tiny mind - but Windows+D and Alt+F4 are now engraved on it ;)

It's done. I think it was OK all the time, if only I'd known how to change the boot order in BIOS. Something about BBS priorities, not where I was looking at all.

Didn't see you there, Britton. I am sure that the system will boot from mSATA, I just have to go into BIOS after cloning is complete and set it there.

Yippee! Thank you. I will report back.

Is that right?
