I would like to replace the M.2 drive that came with the PC with a regular SATA SSD. After I have disconnect the M.2 disk and connected the SATA SSD, I insterted bootable USB, but the system doesnt read the device as bootable. I have checked in on another PC and it works fine. I have also tried to insert a cloned disk from a G5 machine with SATA SSD just for test, but again I get notification that there are no bootable devices found. Does anyone know if there is a setting in BIOS that need to be changed when switching from M.2 to SATA SSD?

Yes, in BIOS SETUP, you have to list the USB or the SSD as being a "bootable" device.
You may also have to "allow boot from USB".
