Boot order question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just installed a brand new Samsung 830 (256gb) and after a little tweaking got it going. Its blazing fast. I had no idea!

Anyhow, im not sure if its an issue but the only way I can boot up my system is if it boots up with the Windows Boot Manager selected as first priority. If I set the SSD to first all I get is a single blinking cursor and then I have to ctrl alt delete to get back to the UEFI to set it back to Windows Boot Manager as first.

Is this an issue? It doesn't seem to have any effect on performance.

Um I take it your Windows files are installed to the 830. If it isn't correctly booting from it, then something is probably just damaged/not installed right. Might want to run a repair. Did you perform any registry edits while tweaking the SSD setup?

It boots fine. Its just that I cant boot directly from it. Its the only drive in my system. And no, I made no edits to the registry.

Did you follow my install guide and use the GPT install? If so that is why. You have to have the Windows Boot Manager to boot.

Nope, nothing to worry about, that is just how it is for GPT OS disks.
