    Boot device- insert proper boot device or insert boot media...

    Hi,

    Do you have something like Windows Boot Manager on the list...

    This is what UEFI machines use as the boot selection for windows...

    Do you have another option in the BIOS for "Which" HDD\SSD ?

    A lot of times if you pick a HDD\SSD as the boot device it will use the HDD\SSD that is listed as the 1st HDD\SSD... The 1st HDD\SSD is selected with a different button, usually on the same screen...

    You may find the Windows Boot Manager there...

    SSD VS HDD

    Storage wise an SSD is absolutely no different to a HDD - 500GB SSD = 500GB HDD.


    The difference between an SSD and an HDD is mainly Read/Write speed - How fast Windows, Applications and Files load

    An SSD is much faster than an HDD

    Also SSD's do not need defragmenting as they employ a totally different method of storing files and deleting files.

    I Hope this Answers your Question!

    SSD for system installation. HDD for data restore. u can do a clean install on the SSD. and copy all the files to the HDD.

    At the moment the sweet spot for OS SSDs is 240gb so if you can, get that size and whatever size HD you can afford after that.

    To obtain significant benefits from the SSD the OS must be installed there. The ideal situation from a performance standpoint would be to have an SSD large enough for both OS and all data. The only problem with that is cost. A good compromise is to have a smaller SSD of about 120 - 256 GB for the OS and applications and a larger HD for data. Typically your data will require more storage space and will benefit less from the SSD.

    Data is read into memory and held there(when you have enough RAM) anyhow. You just need to make sure the HDD doesn't go to sleep by turning Link Power Management off, and "Turn off disk after" is set to Never in advanced power options.
