I have an N3350 Windows machine with AM 2.18.1263 bios. How can I get the bios to recognize other drives than the one that comes with the board? I want to boot from an external USB device and/or the M.2 drive I have installed.
I have a 500GB M.2 2242 SATA SSD card in the M.2 slot formatted with NTFS and Initialized and recognized by Windows as drive D:
Also when I insert my 64GB Samsung FIT Plus thumb drive into the USB port it shows up in Windows as "Samsung USB E:" (formatted as exFAT)
Yet the BIOS does not list either of the above in the boot order.
I need to start the system from the usb drive, which is bootable and will then be used to clone the original system drive to the m.2; then I want to boot from the m.2. can you assist me in how to do that? (By the way, that is easy in an ASUS motherboard....)
I downloaded this software (which claimed to be free) and tried to clone the M.2 drive. It said "Sorry. The clone feature is not available in trial version."
You don't understand what I am saying and trying to do. I already have bootable clone software on the USB drive. How to I set the USB drive to be bootable in the BIOS?
If that is not possible or you do not have another method that will accomplish what I am trying to do, please, please, please, stop wasting both or our times and let me move on to a different product. If that is the case, I need to file a report on Amazon that his product is limited in this way and go on from there.
