Booting issues with Asus maximus viii ranger z170

Hello all,

I have recently revamped my PC and I am having issues when I reset the machine. It doesn't boot on reset unless I access the BIOS first.


CPU: core i5 6600k
MoBo: Asus maximus viii ranger z170
SSD: OCZ Vector 150 (It boots from the SSD but the Windows 10 file reside on the western digital hard disk)

I imagine more details will be needed so ask away. Any help appreciated.

  1. Change the bootdisk to the WD in the BIOS

    If only life were that simple. The WD drive is not available as a boot option from the bios. Let me be clear here, this is a new mobo and CPU over on old installation on win 10. It's beginning to like a fresh installation of Windows might be the answer.

    If it wasnt a clean install then yup it'd be better if you did a clean install

    But if it doesnt appear in the bios whether its the bootdisk or not, then obviously its got a problem
