Omen 30L
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just got  a new Omen 30L and wanted to move over my Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD and make it the boot device.  This was the boot device on my old computer.  I added the SSD to the second slot but I cannot figure out how to make the system recognize this as a boot device anywhere in the BIOS.  Windows does recognize it -- after it boots on the default SSD, I can see it just fine.

I can't seem to find anywhere in the BIOS to choose which SSD it uses as the boot device.  Bios is F.20 (not sure which revision) but the system is only a few days old so thinking it should be relatively current (there are two other F.20 Bios versions available for download).

 

Am I missing something in the Bios?

 

In the Bios Boot Settings, I only see the order of device types and the standard SSD.  The Samsung SSD does show up in RAID setting, so it seems like the Bios can see it -- just can't figure out how to choose it as the boot device.

 

Thanks

You are lucky that it didn't work! If you add a disk from a 2nd Computer it comes with everthing like drivers, keys and so on. 

It would not run on the new computer. 

Do you want a DUAL-BOOT machine?

Then you need a bootstick (Media Creation Tool) and after you cleared /erased the 2nd drive (during setup) you can run the installation. Windows will modify the bootmanager and during startup you can choose to boot from disk 1 or disk 2

ou also can transfer the drivers from disk 1 to the new installation on disk 2.

All this is very easy and you do not even need a new product key.
