    Strange problem, not encountered before.

    Norton Internet Security informed me that there was a problem and I needed to reboot my machine. When it rebooted it was to a blue screen telling me it couldn't find a needed device, 'Press F8 or F9, neither of which worked so I rebooted with the Acronis True Image recovery disc and restored an image from 4 days ago, when I rebooted the blue screen was back again so I went into the UEFI/BIOS screen and looked at the boot order and I couldn't see my Samsung 500GB SSD listed so I went into the boot section and the Samsung 500gb SSD was listed there, I clicked on it and the PC booted normally so I guess my question is how do I get the Samsung 500GB SSD back into the boot section? I looked in Disk Management and the Samsung is listed as the boot drive. JPG attached.

    It might of been helpful to know what was in Norton's logfiles regarding the "problem". [?]

    Run a check disk on the main drive to ensure it's error free.
    Then try one of the following commands to remake your bootfiles...

    bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd * bootrec /RebuildBcd
    Then open an elevated command prompt and type "bcdedit", without the quotes.
    Look closely to ensure all your bootfiles are located on the main drive.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>bcdedit

    Windows Boot Manager
    --------------------
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1
    description Windows Boot Manager
    locale en-US
    inherit {globalsettings}
    default {current}
    resumeobject {10144819-765754675675 70bcdb1c2}
    displayorder {current}
    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
    timeout 2

    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier {current}
    device partition=C:
    path \WINDOWS\system32\winload.exe
    description Windows 10
    locale en-US
    inherit {bootloadersettings}
    recoverysequence {43564576536475675fdghbd/?#!67745676}
    recoveryenabled Yes
    allowedinmemorysettings 0x15000075
    osdevice partition=C:
    systemroot \WINDOWS
    resumeobject {5765437trhtrrt-8aec-84654865566c2}
    nx OptIn
    bootmenupolicy Standard

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>
    It should look something like the above.

    Thank you CLiNT, In desperation I loaded Windows again and then restored from a True Image file and all is well. Cannot understand what would remove the C: drive from the boot section of the BIOS?

    Quirky stuff happens, I know, I've come across it from time to time too.
    Sometimes I'm never able to get to the bottom of it.
