M.2. NVME SSD not recognised in BIOS boot option

HP Recommended
HP Omen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have installed a WD Black NVME SSD into my HP Omen successfully, cloned the HDD to it, formated the HDD, and everything is fine Window's wise.

 

However, every time I restart my laptop it goes to "fixing PC" because it is trying to boot from the HDD. I have to manually press F9 and boot it from the SSD every single time.

 

In BIOS options on the boot menu, my SSD isn't listed at all, just "Windows boot". This is driving me nuts and I cannot think about what to do.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@Lixhul, welcome to the forum.

 

What is the model or product number of the computer?  Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information.

If you really formatted the HDD (not the SSD), there is nothing left on that disk-drive that needs "fixing".  Correct?

 

If you disconnect the HDD, and boot, does it boot from the SSD ?

 

After you press F9, what choices are displayed?  Which one have you been choosing?

 

Enter BIOS setup, and see if the HDD is still listed as being an eligible boot-device.  If it is, remove that entry, or lower its priority, to become lower than the SSD's priority.

Another note: booting into Windows usually boots into Windows' own "boot-manager", where you may get a menu that offers to boot from several separate installations of Windows.  This is *NOT* the BIOS "boot-selection" menu.
