Hello! I built my PC a few days ago and it has not been booting straight to Windows. I think that it should be booting to the SSD every time because it's at the top of the boot priority yet windows isn't showing up. The only way I have found to work is to go into BIOS and click on my SSD in the boot menu. This is a bit of a problem because I would like for my PC to go straight to windows and going to BIOS every single time is a little annoying. I asked r/buildapc and one of the people said to enable the AHCI. I checked my BIOS out and it looks like it is already enabled. Should I just reset windows? And if I do I need to backup my files correct?

Can you post a screen shot from disk management showing all the details did you install with both drives in as often it puts the boot files on another drive
