Change boot drive hard drive

Envy 17
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a new Envy 17 with a SSD 258 drive and a 1 TB std hard drive. I am trying to get the computer to boot on the 1TB drive. When I go into setup I am unable to change boot drives. On startup I have to press esc key and select F9 and then select the 1TB drive to get it to boot to the 1TB drive. I have my windows 10 pro installed on my 1TB drive. The laptop came with the Windows 10 installed on the SSD drive. I want the laptop to automatically boot to the 1TB drive and can not figure out how to change the configuration. Help. Thanks

Hi! @kwlethin, Thanks for stopping by the HP Support Forums!

 

I understand that you want to change boot device options on your laptop.

 

Please try few steps recommended below.

 

Follow the steps below to configure the boot order on most computers.

  1. Turn on or restart the computer.

  2. While the display is blank, press the f10 key to enter the BIOS settings menu.

     NOTE:

    The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or the f6 key on some computers.

  3. Select the Advanced tab using the right and left arrow keys.

  4. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Boot Order.

  5. Follow the on-screen instructions to change the boot order.

Refer this article to further troubleshoot changing boot order issues: http://hp.care/2fe1TGY

 

 

Hope to hear from you soon!

Have a great day! :)

Here is a shot of what comes up when I press F10, no advanced tab comes up and configuration does not give me the option to change the boot drive. Appreciate your help. Thanks

Hey there! @kwlethin, Thanks for the reply.

 

I have checked the setup of BIOS on Envy 17 laptop and I did see an option to change the boot order.

 

Please get into BIOS, Select system configuration Tab.

You should see boot order. Select boot order and hit the enter key.

Use F5 and F6 keys to change the boot order.

 

Press F10 to save changes and exit.

 

Keep me updated.

Have a great day! :)
