    How to switch disk numbers: I want Disk 0 to be Disk 1 and Disk 1 to be Disk 0


    Hi,

    I bought a Desktop it came with M.2 MVME PCIe SSD and HDD . the win10 is in the SSD . But the SSD is listed as disk1 and the HDD listed as disk0 in Disk Management. In general it's functioning OK, but today when I installed the Adata SSD Tool Box for maintenance purposes, it went to HDD and only shows HDD not SSD ! How can I switch around? TIA

    :)

  2. switch disk numbers: I want Disk 0 to be Disk 1 and Disk 1 to be Disk 0

    Hi, My computer contained a normal HDD hard drive. I recently upgraded to a SSD. The original HDD is Disk 0 and the new SSD is Disk 1. The windows OS is on Disk 1. I want to dual boot my system with Windows and Ubuntu with both OS being on the SSD. Since
    the SSD is Disk 1 the Ubuntu install goes directly to Disk 0 because Disk 0 is first on the list. How can I switch the two Disks so my SSD drive is Disk 0? Thanks.

    How do I switch disk 1 to being disk 0, and disk 0 to being disk 1?

    I'd heard it's best practice to install Windows on disk 0, and I wanted it on my NVMe SSD and not my 4 TB HDD. So, I only connected the SSD so it would be disk 0. However, after that went smoothly and the C drive was on my SSD, things went downhill. After
    I shut off the computer, connected the SATA data and SATA power cables to the HDD, I restarted. After a restart, the computer prompted me to format the new drive so that it could be used, and I also created the primary partition on it with the drive letter
    A. Then, it instantly switched the 4 TB HDD to being disk 0! Now the C drive is on disk 1.

    Is there any way to switch disk 1 to disk 0, and disk 0 to disk 1?

    Thanks!

    Hi Kati

    When you added the new SSD did you connect that to the SATA port on the motherboard that the original hard drive was connected to, or to another port?

    If you swap round the SATA ports on your Motherboard for those drives and change the boot order in BIOS to boot form SATA port 0 (the SSD), then the SSD should be Disk 0 and the HDD disk 1 . ..
