Thank you for reading my question, but thank you even more for answering!
My setup is as followed: An Acer laptop using an SSD with Ubuntu installed in the deticated "hdd" SATA slot, and a HDD with Windows installed in the optical SATA slot (I've removed the dvd drive).
When booting the system I've got two option in POST:
(F2) BIOS configurations/Boot order.
(F12) select a device to boot, either my HDD (Windows 7) or my SSD (Ubuntu 13.10).
When pressing F2 I can change the Boot order, but only one of the storage devices shows up the HDD (under the name "HDD0: ST950032...").
The result is a system that always boots the hdd (windows) unless said otherwise, when my goal was to have it the other way around.
So my the question is: how can I select the SSD in the boot order list? (or another fancy solution will do also)
The SSD is a Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
When removing the hdd, the ssd shows up again and boots it.
It seems that the SSD is in SATA Port 0 and the HDD is in SATA port 2
this post descibed a very similar problem but its not the same, my drives both contain their own OS and nothing more.
