Hey guys, so my laptop has come with a 1TB HDD and an empty Msata slot, I would like to move my OS from HDD to Msata, I have tried cloning the original drive to the Msata and all the data transfers but it still operates form the HDD, I have gone into the BIOS and the Msata does not show as a bootable drive in UEFI mode, only in Legacy mode, however I would like to run in UEFI mode, I have read that I need to install the OS onto the Msata and disconnect the HDD, however I have no installation CD, How would I go about installing Windows 8 to the Msata SSD to make it a bootable drive in the UEFI mode?
Thank you

If you can't set it as a bootable device it won't boot from it. Since it's cloned already see if it will boot if you remove the regular hard drive.
The laptop vendor may also be a good source of info, did you check with their support line?
