Y500 mSATA SSD - No boot priority in BIOS

2014-08-14, 11:50 AM

Hi All,

I've been able to resolve my last issues regarding GPU's and screen connectivity by replacing a part, updating VBIOS and reinstalling drivers so now running successfully in SLI, but now having an issue with my newly ordered mSATA.

 

I've installed it successfully, it is recognized and I've copied my Windows partition to it.  When entering the BIOS I don't ever get an option to change boot priority.  As in no devices are listed be it HDD, USB, mSATA, etc.  I am given 3 options along the lines of IPv4, IPv6, and some sort of Windows option.

 

Do I have to configure something in Windows to be able to set mSATA as my boot drive?

Enable Legacy Boot Device, if you don't have your drive configured correctly, it wont have the information for it to pop up in the other boot list.

Thanks for the reply, but even if I enable Legacy Boot Device I will then see: Boot Drive Priority (or something similar).

However, no drive is listed included my HDD which successfully is able to boot Windows 8.

I just had this same issue this week and ended up having to replace the hard drive.  When I took it to IT at the University I work at they said that all partitions were damaged.  But this is exactly what it did, nothing I selected or changed made any difference.  Simply went dark for a minute then back to where it was.  Hope you can get yours fixed, but that is what my end result was with the same issue.
