Weird, what are the options in boot override?
You can take screen capture by pressing f12 to save it to usb drive.

Power off the psu or unplug the power, wait a minute
Remove the battery and clear cmos again
Wait 15 minutes, put the battery back and try again.

Here is a picture. Got 3 USB's plugged into the back, directly into the mobo!

I really don't now, and I saw only the ssd in boot override, are the other drives not connected?

I have 1 SSD 2 HDD and 3 USB's all plugged in. Only what I have plugged into Sata Port #1 ever shows up.

In that case return it.

Agreed! But tell me this. Shouldn't this just be plug and play? I should not have to go into the bios and make any changes just to boot into Win10, right?

In principle, just load defaults and go.
I don't know if windows will boot properly with drive from another system (e.g. one usb ports did not work) but it least the board shold attempt to boot it.
And of course it must boot from usb drives.

I have the same issue but with a different motherboard, I have B450 Gaming Carbon Pro AC. I tried all the fixes I found, nothing worked, so I had to reinstall windows 10 after wiping the SSD, then it will work for 2-3 days and suddenly blue screen and then "Repot and select proper boot device".
I bought the items 2 weeks ago, and so far this has happened 4 times and every time I had to reinstall windows :-( , please let me know when you find a solution

So here we are a whole year and a half later with a whole new mobo and the same damn issue. I will NEVER buy another MSI mobo again. I tried all the suggested fixes and the system still will not boot. Its like the mobo just does not like MS Windows boot drives. This time I tried 1 SSD, 2 HDD, and a flash drive. This system just will not boot.

The same board X470 GAMING PLUS?
It might sound stupid but have you tried with different SATA cables?

So after all that failed trouble shooting I finally figured out what may have been the issue. The boot SSD was created on my old ADM AM3 system. I had an AMD FX 6 core. Something about that is not compatible with AM4. Had to reinstall a completely new fresh image on the SSD. Now Im up and running.
