T470 cant boot from m2 wwan slot ssd

Hello, I installed a new m2 2242 ssd in the wwan slot, installed windows 10 on it perfectly, but i cannot boot from it.. I set the m2 drive to the top of the boot priority, I disabled secure boot in the bios and also set the UEFI/Legacy boot to "both". I hit f12 during lenovo screen and directly selected the drive to boot, but it doesn't do anything.... Im not sure what else to do. Is this even possible?? I want to boot from the m2 and use the hdd as storage

 

 

Thanks

Did you have your original HDD installed while installing Windows 10 to the new SSD?

Do you get an option to boot into two operating systems if you try to boot into the hard drive instead? It's possible that the Windows 10 installer just put a new entry into the existing bootloader instead of putting a fresh one onto the mSATA drive.
