I have an Acer notebook and wanted to upgrade an SSD. So I created a bootable USB, took the old HDD out and the new SSD into the primary slot. Installed Windows 8.1 on the Samsung EVO and started the PC to try it. It worked perfectly, but because I still need all the data from my old HDD I cannot clear it. So I plugged it into a second slot, and now the problem is the PC keeps booting from old HDD, even though I told the boot menu to use SSD first.
Then again looked into boot menu and it automatically set old HDD as first and doesn't even list the SSD anymore. But I see the SSD in the explorer.
Can you help me so my laptop will simply boot from the SSD without deleting the old HDD?
