    It seems that I have found a solution for problems with a ssd (mine is a samsung 840 pro 512Gb), on a asus k75vm.
    Hi there,
    Hallo all,

    I bought a hdd caddy to replace the optical drive with a ssd

    Now my asus recognizes the ssd even in ahci mode. Finally it works perfectly.

    Regards Peter, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

    Nice find
    I also bought samsung 840 pro 512Gb , and wanted to order that caddy ...
    But first i tried the SSD in Bay 1 (the bay of Original HD) and works like a charm in SATA3 and AHCI
    Moved the WD HD to bay 2 , it is recognised in the Bios and windows Device Manager , but not in Windows Explorer
    I tried the following trick Hard Drive Not Showing Up In My Computer - How to fix it (Windows 7) PART 1 - YouTube
    Good luck to the rest of you

    I also have the k75vm. I bought a samsung 840 evo 250gb
    After trying to find a solution for installing windows 7 on there.
    I went back to the place that sold me the ssd and they tried installing it. But after trying for 2 hours they came back to tell me the k75 wasn't compatible with ssd's. So they gave me a refund.
    Afterwards i started digging online and found this thread. I have read it entirely and wanted to know if it was possible to put an ssd in my laptop?
    For me both 2 free sata slots didn't work. I don't really use my disc drive. Does it work in there?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried using DISKPART utility in Windows installation to clean the drive out?
    Press SHIFT + F10 to open it while in the installation screen.
    Then type diskpart [Enter] to get into the utility.
    lis dis [Enter]
    sel dis 0 [Enter] (if 0 is the SSD)
    clean [Enter]
    exit [Enter]
    Then proceed to OS install and see if it allows you to install the OS.

    Ok, in case you have a chance to access it again then don't forget to try the commands that I've shown here.

    Hi guys.
    Had the same problem. Asus K75VM + Samsung 840 EVO. All symptoms as you described here.
    Fortunately my friend give me to try OCZ VERTEX 4. And with this SSD works just fine.
    So probably it's some hardware incompatibility behind Asus K75VM and some SSD controllers.
    So all is not so bad I hope ))

    Can you give the exact serial number of the OCZ VERTEX 4?

    Which version, so that I can buy the same.

    Couldn't find the CT128V4SSD2 for shipping to Belgium.

    Kun je misschien wat duidelijker uitleggen hoe je juist een SSD werkend hebt gekregen op een K75VM?

    Bedankt

    Could this one work on the K75vm?

    Good news lads!

    I'm providing IT assistance to many, so I've had a number of SSD in my hands; every now and then I tried one with my poor K75VM, that two years ago pissed me off with the same issues you're discussing, and guess what??? I FOUND A SSD DRIVE THAT WORKS!!! CHEERS!!!

    Go out and buy a Kingston SSDNOW V+ 200 120GB, as long as you can still one new. It's the older version (current is "300"), it's already sata3; it's more expensive than the current versions but... who cares! instead of messing with odd and stuff...

    Just to be 100% clear:
    -K75VM, 8GB ram
    -latest "2014" bios v.234
    -no messing with ODD: it's still there
    -no messing with bios
    -regular HDD bay (the one closest to the center, but I don't think that's important)
    -the model that I tested, and I've been using succesfully for the last three weeks, is Kingston SSDNOW V+ 200 120GB; in the following days I tried a Crucial BX100 500GB (I need more space) with no luck; I'll try soon a Kingston V 300 480GB, but so far the only tested is V+ 200 120GB, so stick with it.

    If you need anything, just ask.

    If you follow my advice and successfully run a V+ 200 120GB (or any other model or size), please let others (and myself) know in this thread.

    Regards,

    Roberto
