  1. BIOS can not detect SSD


    Acer Swift3 SF-315-52
    Windows 10
    - After HDD hard drive crashed I tried to install a Samsung 860 PRO 512 GB SSD
    - I'm booting from USB Windows 10
    - Nothing happens black screen when SSD is connected
    - Cannot enter BIOS
    - If I disconnect from SSD, the computer boots from USB
    - I can also get into the BIOS
    - Nothing wrong with the computer because I tried to reformat an old GDP HDD to MBR via DOS promt and reinstall Windows 10 via USB and everything works perfectly

    Why can't I install Samsung's SSD

    :)

    SSD is not detected in BIOS

    Hi Joey,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    We understand how difficult it could be. However, could you please let us know was there any major change on your system prior to which you weren’t facing this issue?

    Meanwhile, we would suggest you to follow the methods mentioned below and check if it resolves the issue.

    Method 1: Change BIOS settings.

    1. As you have mentioned, you are able to boot the system in safe boot, restart the system and enter
      BIOS setup.
    2. Expand System Configuration and click on
      SATA Operation.
    3. Change the SATA Operation mode to AHCI from either IDE or RAID.
    4. Save changes or Apply
      and ExitSetup.
    5. Reboot once more and Windows will automatically start the AHCI drivers.

      BIOS Disclaimer: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer
      from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

    After following the steps above, if the SSD is being detected. Please follow
    Method 2.

    Method 2: Rebuild BCD from command prompt (This method needs bootable media).

    If the bootable media is not created, you can refer this link to

    Create Windows 10 installation media
    , please refer this section on 'Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC' for the steps to create installation
    media.

    1. Insert the bootable media for Windows 10, and restart your PC.
    2. Press on any key to proceed.
    3. Select a language and click on
      Next.
    4. Click on Repair your computer option.
    5. Click the operating system that you want to repair and then click
      Next.
    6. On the Choose an option screen, select
      Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Command Prompt.
    7. Type BOOTREC /FIXMBR, and then press
      ENTER.
    8. Type BOOTREC /FIXBOOT, and then press
      ENTER.
    9. Type BOOTREC /SCANOS, and then press
      ENTER.
    10. Type BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD, and then press
      ENTER.
    11. Restart your PC.

    Regards.

  3. SSD is not detected in BIOS

    Hi,

    My desktop computer was running perfectly fine when suddenly the SSD (boot OS) is not detected when booting up. I tried using the SSD with other computers, it's not being detected. Removed other sata cables and just used this one and still not working.

    However, when I tried using an enclosure, the files are being detected. Tried to boot it using the enclosure, I'm getting an error message (INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE). It does go to login screen when I do safe mode but Im unable to login because I was using
    a PIN to get access. Unable to reset pw as well because it's only working on safe mode.

    Any help?

    Asus h97m-e motherboard

    Msi gtx 950

    Intel i5 3.20GHz

    2x kingston 8gb ram

    Kingston 120gb SSD (win10 OS)

    WD HDD 1TB (other hdd for files)

    ***Modified Title from: SSD not being detected in BIOS but detected using enclosure?***

    BIOS can not detect SSD

    Installing SSD not detected by BIOS

    Sequence of installing new SSD.
    1. Disconnected the HDD with Windows.
    2. Fitted Syba 4 Sata PCI-E card
    3. Fitted Samsung 500GB 860 SSD connected to Syba 4 Sata PCI-E card
    4. Installed Windows 10 Home in Samsung 500GB 860 SSD
    ​Windows installed fine in the SSD. Entered the BIOS to set the SSD as 1st Boot priority but the BIOS has not detected it. The only boot devices shown in the BIOS are the CD/DVD Rom and the Replaceable Device. *Mad
    Device Manager shows the SSD connected.
    I connected the the HDD which still has Windows installed but I get the message to "Reboot and Select Boot Media" even though the SSD is still connected. *Eek
    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Just noticed while safe removing USB memory stick that the SSD shows as a removable drive C\:!!!! *Eek
