HP Elitedesk 800 G6 SFF replace M.2 with regular sata

Elitedesk 800 G6 SFF

Hi,

 

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?

 

Thanks!

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".
