    • Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
    • MSI CLICK BIOS 5
    • TOSHIBA HDD
    • SanDisk SSD
    How do I get both drives to list in the boot order menu in the EFI again ?

    1. When I first received my system, the MSI CLICK BIOS 5 Boot\UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities looked like
    this:
    • I had two boot drive options in EFI - 1st Toshiba HDD and 2nd SanDisk SSD (Windows installed on both)
    • Windows installed to both drives
    • Windows would boot normally to the lock screen
    • If I wanted to switch drive boot, I would just change the order in the EFI boot order priorities

    2. I clean installed Windows onto both the SanDisk SSD and then the Toshiba HDD. Now the MSI CLICK BIOS 5
    Boot\UEFI Hard Disk Drive BBS Priorities look like this:
    • The Toshiba HDD is not in the EFI boot order priorities
    • Whichever drive I install Windows to first, is the only drive that will appear in the EFI boot order priorities
    • Windows installed to both drives

    3. When I boot into Windows now, after clean installing Windows to each drive, I get this:

    When you re-installed Windows you should have disconnected the 2nd drive.
    Try disconnecting the sandisk, boot into winpe (uefi mode) & run bcdboot ?:\windows (where ? is your windows drive letter)...

    Thanks for your reply Flipp3r...

    There is no way to correct this without having to disconnect the drives and reinstalling windows ?

    I am not understanding boot into winpe. Do you mean boot into EFI (MSI calls theirs a BIOS) ?

    How would I run bcdboot in the EFI ?

    Boot your install dvd, press shift-f3 for command prompt & run the command from there.

    I do not have a install dvd, but instead just the Win 10 installer created using the Windows Media Creation Tool. This will work too ?

    I must disconnect the SSD; there is no way to do this without opening the case and disconnecting the drive ?

    Hi bro. :)

    Guess the MCT did a USB stick right? If so it might work.

    Yes open the case and disconnect it.

    Yes, I used MCT to create the USB installer.

    Thanks Mr X. Hardware\boot stuff not my thing exactly. For me it's a learn-as-you-go kind of thing... :confused: -> MyDigitalLife -> :D

    Um, I said shift+f3 but I think it's Shift+F10 for command prompt. Boot your usb & find out!!!
