In the past I have used a number of Sandisk SSDs to replace HDDs in laptops but this one has me stumped!
I purchased a 240GB SandiskPlus and cloned via a USB/SATA cable with Macrium then tried it in my HP 655 Win 10 laptop. Although the SSD has several partitions and what looks like a full file system to Windows explorer the drive was not recognisable, I repeated using a different cloning program (EasUS) and same result.
On closer examination it appears that my HP laptop cannot even see the SSD in the bios ( I repeated the experiment with a known working Sandisk 120GB SSD from another laptop and that was invisible too). I have changed what settings I could on the laptop bios (legacy boot etc but no option available for AHCI) but my laptop (with an Insyde H20 bios) seems incapable of recognising your devices. Before you send me off to HP do you have any suggestions?
