So i have a hackintosh for allmost 2 years with el capitan on it, now i wanted to install windows 10 on a separate ssd. all worked fine.
The only problem is that when i have both ssd's plugged in, windows will allways start. i can only get into OSX if i unplug the ssd.
I allredy tried to set windows as second boot option and osx as first but no results.

This is a BIOS/UEFI boot older setting problem.

If you have not added Clover to your firmware's boot menu, it is possible by osx you mean /efi/boot/bootx64.efi (displayed as "UEFI Boot Somedisk" or similar) this is an EFI "fallback path", used mainly for booting from external media like installers, and when a higher priority boot path cannot be found (e.g windows bootloader might be hard coded on microsoft WHQL certified firmware, as a higher priority fallback path than /efi/boot/bootx64.efi for internal drives)
