AK1 stopped booting from SSD
#1
AK1 has been working ok for a few weeks but suddenly has stopped booting from the SSD and tries to boot from the network.

I've checked the bios and the SSD is no longer the primary boot drive. I've moved the SSD to to be the first drive in the list and saved the BIOS settings but the pc still won't boot from the ssd.

I've pressed F7 as well to enter the boot orderhe and order upon boot and the ssd is not always listed. If the SSD is listed I can manually get it to boot but the SSD drive is not always listed.

I've tried reseating the SSD drive and it appears fine.

The SSD drive also works in another pv.

Any idea how to get the AK1 to boot from the SSD ?

Or is this fault with ak1?

Maybe... set bios as default? And modify boot manager?

Don't understand your response about the BIOS but I've reset the bios then made the SSD the primary boot device. It doesn't work. 

Also used windows boot manager. There's no option to make the SSD a boot drive.

In Windows boot manager I selected option to access EFI firmware. This opened the same bios as when you select F7.

Even our IT manager could not get the AK1 to boot from the SSD. We also checked the SSD in another pc and it attempted boot.

Conclusion, the AK1 is faulty or the bios isn't up to to the job of booting from SSD, reliably.

AK1 has been returned for refund and another mini pc from a different brand purchased.
