Unable to recognize SSD solution

Post by barry777 »

If your computer doesn't recognize the SSD, there could be several reasons. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can follow:

1. Restore bios default value
Turn off the computer first, and press Delete continuously when starting up—it will enter the BIOS page—press F3—then press F4 to save and exit (if YES or yes appears on the right side of the page, you can use the keyboard Enter key to select YSE or, and then exit )

2. Check the physical connection
Make sure the SSD is properly connected to the computer's motherboard and power supply. Make sure the cable or connector is firmly inserted and properly seated.

3. Check Disk Management
If the SSD is listed in the BIOS but not in Windows, check the disk management tool. In Windows, you can access Disk Management by right-clicking My Computer or This Computer and selecting Manage, then Disk Management.

4. Check Compatibility
Make sure the SSD is compatible with the computer and compatible with the system.

5. Use the partition tool: DiskGenius
All hard disks will be displayed on the left side of the list (if not displayed, please check the compatible hard disk type of the device), right-click GPT to select new hard disk, and select New Partition (you can check to create ESP and MSR partitions at the same time).
Note 1: MSR partition (Microsoft Reserved Partition) is a partition on a GPT disk used to reserve space for backup. For example, this space is used when converting a disk to dynamic.
Note 2: The ESP partition (UFFI system partition) is used for computer systems that use UFFI BIOS to start the operating system. The boot management program, drivers, system maintenance tools, etc. are stored in the partition.
Note 3: If the computer uses the UFFI system, or may use the current disk to start the system on the UFFI system in the future, you need to create an ESP partition.
Suggest a new partition, this step is checked by default, click OK. At this time the hard disk has not been formatted, click the upper left corner to save the modification, click Yes in the pop-up window, you can use the new disk.

6. Try another computer: If possible, try the SSD on another computer to rule out any issues with the SSD itself.

If none of these steps work, there may be a hardware failure.
