    I think it is something in the bios, or perhaps a disk issue itself. But I have it installed in the HDD bay and it just won't show up on the computer or in the bios. I pull it out and plug it in via USB and there it is. I put the old HDD into the bay and it shows up just fine.

    I'd love to, but I can't get my computer to recognize or see the SSD at all when I put it in the bay. My last idea is the reflash the bios, but I don't even have a copy. It seems my computer does not see the SSD at all when it is plugged into the bay.

    I even tried doing a fresh install, but the computer just won't see the SSD at all whenever I plug it into the bay. Windows 10 setup doesn't see it whatsoever. I can ONLY get the drive detected by the bios when I use the "UEFI Firmware Settings" button on the Windows 10 Setup Troubleshoot. When I click that, the computer restarts straight into the BIOS and it says the drive is finally detected under the BOOT menu with the UEFI enabled. But I save and exit and the SSD is gone again, not seen in the BIOS or in any subsequent Windows 10 installation efforts

    What about a CMOS reset via unplugging the battery under the keyboard, I'm just spitballing now.

    Well, I could never figure this out, I have no clue if it was my BIOS or the drive itself, but plugging it into the bay was a no-go. I've given up on it and am sending it back to Amazon. Maybe I'll try again around Black Friday or if I see another nice deal on a good SSD. I have to get at least 2-3 more years out of this NP9150, which should be fairly easy. I had a new MB put in in 2016 and all I'd like now is a larger OS partition, the 256gb M4 is getting mighty tight. Which was the purpose of wanting this 1tb SSD.

    Samsung had some updated msata drives iirc that could be nice.

    Not a bad idea, I'll look into that, I was hoping to take advantage of the SATA III the bay offers over the SATA II of the mSATA. but a nice new 1TB mSATA would still serve me well if I could clone over my current setup and get it for around $200.

    A drive like that is going to be tested on the older platforms at least.

    Just ordered one of these Samsung Evo 860 1TB for $267, no taxes out of CA to TX and a highly rated $10 Sabrent enclosure to make my new/old msata card sata compatible for cloning and storage. So, we'll find out sometime Saturday or Sunday if this will work out. Spent $100 more than I wanted, but I'm working 96 hrs this two weeks, so might as well get a treat.
