    Hello. In W7, to change boot order, I went into the BIOS/Boot/ then moved the devices up or down to change the boot order and exited with saving. Under W10 however, I do not see the same options and am confused as to how to accomplish this. I have a Lenovo Y700 15isk which has a 1 TB HDD and a slot for an m.2 drive. I want to clone an m.2 from the HDD and and use that as my boot device, but don't know how to accomplish that in W10. Any step by step guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    The BIOS software is tied to the computer's motherboard and isn't controlled by the Windows operating system.
    Regardless of whether you have Windows 7 or Windows 10 installed in your computer, the BIOS settings screen remains the same.
