    Be sure new motherboard BIOS has SATA AHCI enabled
    Be sure new motherboard BIOS starts from SSD instead of HDD. Or simply say harddisk, but it's possible it starts from HDD if it has an active partition. Mark all HDD partition as inactive prior to swap. check in "disk management"

    Are you very sure it boots from SSD???!!! check in device management what partition has boot flag. If it's SSD partition then mark HDD partitions as inactive (if any)

    1. Enter diskpart, then list disk after diskpart is loaded.
    2. Enter select disk [number of the disk the partition is on].
    3. Enter list partition, followed by select partition [partition number].
    4. Type inactive.


    5. type exit
    Now check again in "disk management". Be sure not to make SSD partition inactive!
