Just bought several SanDisk 128 SSD as an upgrade for laptops en PC's. Have been doing this before with different brands. Kingston, Corsair, Intel. Never a problem happy customers. On a short notice the SanDisk was the only available disk.
The disk is seen by the BIOS but not by CloneZilla, Acronis of even fdisk. This happened on several machines with several SanDisk SSD's
What's (am doing) wrong ?

you say this is happening on several PC and with several SanDisk SSD. How many exactly? we ahve never seen any reports here with anyone else reporting this issue.
If the suggestion below does not work we would need some more information about the computers you are seeing this issue with. We need make, model, SATA chipset, BIOS version, SATA config, SATA driver for the hardware what cloning apps you are using and versions.
That said if a drive is seen in the BIOS but not by cloning software it is usually an issue with the partition. Try using a windows installtion disk and use diskpart to clean the partition.
1. Insert the windows 7 DVD into the DVD drive.
All the partitions and all the data on the disk is permanently removed.
9. Continue istallation of Windows OS by using automatic partitioning scheme rather than creating partitions yourself.

There are no driver fro sandisk. You will use either the Microsoft AHCI driver included in Win 7 and Win 8 or you will need to get the driver from your motherboard manufacturer.
