  1. Issue with a new SSD and Windows Boot manager


    Recently I did install a new SSD into my Aurora R7. I've unplugged my HDD, installed the SSD, used Windows on an USB and installed the Windows on the SSD. Then formatted the HDD. It works fine and my computer boots in seconds but if I go to BIOS and try to change the boot order the only thing showing there is Windows Boot Manager and some other 2 options which I can specify if needed. There is no sign of the SSD. Thanks for help!

  2. Windows boot manager

    There could be some system conflict triggered after the said changes. To help you with your concern, we suggest that you perform a clean boot. A
    clean boot is performed to start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This will help to determine what is causing the issue on the Windows boot manager. To do this, click on this
    link and scroll down to the
    How to determine what is causing the problem by performing a clean boot section then follow the steps listed..

    Note: If the installation is successful and the issue has been resolved. Please go through the section “How to reset the computer to start as usual” to reset your computer to the normal startup.

    Let us know how it goes after performing the suggested steps.

    New windows 10 installation in new SSD changing bios to UEFI boot up

    I am planning on buying a new SSD and install a fresh copy of windows on it. However, I want to keep my old copy still working and bootable at least until I have transferred all the important stuff over, so I was thinking on installing a boot manager so
    that I can choose which version of windows to boot.

    The questions I have are:

    • My old drive booted up using legacy bios/MBR and I want to use GPT/UEFI now. I will setup the new drive accordingly, but i am wondering if I will still be able to boot the old drive once the new drive is GPT/UEFI
    • Any recommendations on which boot manager to use? I was thinking grup2win. Any comments?
    • Should I install the boot manager before or after installing the new windows SSD?
    Thanks all in advance

    Issue with a new SSD and Windows Boot manager

    windows 10 slow boot

    I was having a slow boot issue on my Windows 7 install a little while back. It would take about 30 - 40 extra seconds to boot up for whatever reason.

    I would try following these steps, while this didn't solve my issue, it did increase Read/Write to where it should be.

    Looks to be similar to this: https://www.back2gaming.com/focus-story/ssd-optimization-for-windows-10-windows-8-and-8-1/


    In the end, I had to reinstall my Windows 7 entirely to fix the booting issue. It was taking around 35 seconds to boot, and after the fresh install it takes about 7 seconds to boot.
