I have a fairly new Acer desktop that I just upgraded to 10. I bought a Samsung SSD that I'd like to move my Windows installation and programs over to. It's more than big enough to fit all of the data from the existing partition(it's not much beyond a vanilla Windows), so that shouldn't be an issue.
I formatted the SSD as a simple GPT partition using Disk Management. Then I used "EaseUS Todo Backup"(per a LifeHacker guide) to clone my C: partition to the SSD. As far as I can tell, that worked. Windows sees the drive just fine, and all of the data appears to be there. It's identical to C: as far as I can see.
Here's the problem: the BIOS does not see the drive as an option to boot from in the boot order menu. All I see is "Windows Boot Manager" as the only option. I haven't done anything like this in years so I'm unfamiliar with that and I'm not sure what to look for. I tried going through Settings to reboot the computer in what I think is "Windows Boot Manager" and I didn't see anything relevant to my issue.
It's visible elsewhere in the BIOS(and by Windows) so it's obviously not a connection issue. I tried unplugging the existing HDD, that didn't change anything(and obviously it didn't boot).
Any ideas to debug this issue would be appreciated.
