DX58SO2 motherboard and new ssd drive

Hi!
I have a DX58SO2 motherboard using daily with 2 old harddrives. I've bought a new Kingston A400 240gb ssd drive recently and would like to set it as my main drive with Windows 10 on it. I use usb flash to install Windows 10 and it was installed successfully to my new ssd connected to sata3 port. But when I try to boot from ssd, I receive "no bootable device" message. I've spent nearly 2 days to try different bios setups and even updated version of bios, but still same issue. Please help!

Remove the HDDs. Move SSD to Port 0. Reset BIOS configuration to defaults. Install Windows to SSD. Should boot then. Can add HDDs back afterwards.

Hi Scott, thanks for advice.
I did everything exactly as you said, but unfortunately it didn't work. Default bios settings disabling UEFI, so ssd is not recognised by system. After enabling uefi manually and installing Win 10, got same error message - "No bootable device".

Hhmmm, have you tried a different SSD?

For my DX58SO system, I went all in to maximize its performance. I bought one of these SATA controllers: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01452SP1O, which provided me with a SATA III controller and 6Gb/s transfers, a boot ROM to avoid compatibility issues (like this, I think), a home for the SSD drive itself plus an additional SATA port for another SATA III device.
