I would like to check a coupe of things regarding this matter, please see below;
- Did you install Windows® 10 on both drives? Is there any particular reason why you have Windows® 10 on both drives?
- What is your BIOS version?
- When you mount these two drives; do you change the boot priority in your BIOS configuration?
- Have you tried accessing F10 and selecting your boot device?
This problems happens when I have install W10 only on my m.2 drive, and in the SATA drive with Linux or simply as Storage with Windows.
-W10 (m.2 Intel 600p) + Linux (SATA SSD Kinston) = doen´t work Windows properly
-W10 (m.2 Intel 600p) + Storage in windows (SATA SSD Kinsgton) = doen´t work Windows properly
-W10 (m.2 Intel 600p) with SATA SSD dissassembly = works well
Never I had install Windows in both drives at the same time
The BIOS is update with 060 version. I think it is the last version.
In the option that I have Windows (m.2) and Linux (SATA SSD), in BIOS, is the Linux system which has the first priority (in UEFI mode and init with GRUB correctly). When I have only Windows, the boot (in UEFI mode) is only for the m.2 drive.
Both units are format in GPT mode.
From your post I understand that in the past you have installed Windows 10 on the SSD SATA Drive (Kinsgton V300). Now you have Windows 10 on Intel 600p M.2 drive and Linux on Kingston drive. Did you have deleted all the Windows 10 partitions on the SATA drive. If not, I suggest that you shall delete all Windows 10 partitions (recovery, EFI, etc), reformat this disk and only than try to boot from M.2 SSD.
You have understand good the issue.
Before install Linux in SATA drive, I erase all partitions with MiniTool Partition Wizard.
I´m thinking that may be, the SATA disk is wrong, however I scanned with a surface test and the result was satisfactory. May be, another type of error...
chendler, I was unable to replicate this behavior on my unit, I used Intel 530 Series M.2 and a SATA SDD with the same configuration you mentioned on post #2 but the issue did no happened. For testing purposes; is there any chance to test a different M.2 drive?
I haven´t another m.2 drive. I can´t try it.
Today, I have only mounted the m.2 and the system works perfectly with Windows 10. I think that the issue is that the SATA drive doesn´t works properly, however I scan this unit and there was not any error.
Thanks for your support.
chendler, at this stage I can offer you a replacement for the Intel® NUC, this since I was unable to replicate this behavior. You can use the options below to check the replacements options;
