Hello
Just upgraded to a X99 FTW k motherboard and I'm adding a Samsung SSD to the system. I'm using Samsungs migration tool to move os to it, when I try to make it my boot drive it disappears in the bios and file explorer.
Can anyone tell what I,m doing wrong?

    Make sure that the BIOs is set to UEFI. Make sure the option for the SSD appears in the boot menu or there is an option called Windows Boot Loader. If it is not there then you should be able to fix it:

    Sometimes the easiest method is to boot a Windows 10 USB stick or DVD and choose the repair option and let it try to fix the problem for you.

    Welcome to the Forum rudd86
    You would be much better off Installing a Fresh OS on a New Motherboard and CPU .... Chipset as well.

    +1.  That is the best idea.  Best way for a solid, stable system afterwards...

    I also agree with the last few comments.  Start new and fresh is honestly the best thing you can do.  Plus it shouldn't take that long.

    A fresh install is also fine but make a backup of your data and then restore it after the fresh install.
