Installed SSD - Now Won't Boot Properly

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec0095nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello All, I installed a Samsung SSD NVMe M.2 500 gig 970 EVO and used Samsung's  migration tool.  All worked fine until I re-formatted the original SATA hard drive so I could use as just a storage drive.  Now when I turn on the laptop, I get a screen that says Preparing Automatic Repair, then goes to a blue screen.  


The only way to get in is from the blue screen is select ;


Advanced Options

UEFI Firmware Settings



Boot from EFI File - Enter

Select the NVMe Drive - Enter

Scroll down to Boot - Enter

Scroll down to boot X64.efi - Enter


I'm now logged in and computer works fine.


How do I get it to just boot from the SSD?  


I've done all the changes in the BIOS I can do, still nada...only thing I can think of is completely remove the old SATA drive from the machine.
