Anybody have an idea in solving this problem? System specs located in attached .pdf file.
The only way I can get the system to boot to the SSD drive;
Boot up - searches for system drive – unsuccessful - power off .
Power on - F2 Check Status of SATA Drives - SSD appears
F10 exit - save
Computer boots up.
Dumb luck in discovering this process.
Yes, I discovered the drive is OK by putting in another machine but I just used that machine to verify the drive, not as a system disk.
Your issue appears to be similar to the one in this thread:
Users can boot from a cold start but not after a restart. We are working on a solution to this issue.
If the system cannot boot after shut down please follow up here instead: /thread/46985 https://communities.intel.com/thread/46985
Just the opposite - cannot boot from a cold start without entering bios (on the second try, configuration\Sata Drives\SSD dive appears\f10\save) - boots fine from restart.
Also, SSD drive shows as Disk 3 when it should be Disk 0 in Disk Management.
