Windows 7: Samsung SSD 840 EVO boot problem

21 Feb 2017   #11

Windows 7 HP 64

Now that I see your Disk Manager Image from post 8, I apologize as I was wrong (post 6)
The only boot able disk (active) is disk 0.
Data disk 1 has no active sector.
In other words, everything is correct and should be working.

In a Legacy - MBR BIOS:
- You will see all disks (boot able or no boot able) under SATA devices.
- You may not see non boot able disks under boot options.

As BIOS doesn't always show your SSD and the win 7 installation doesn't find it, I would say that you have a SSD failure.

Put the disk on desktop that has a Windows.
Open Disk manager and on the SSD delete all partitions - Don't create new. Leave it RAW. (If it doesn't see the SSD, you have a SSD failure)
On the Laptop, put the SSD on SATA 0 and remove the HDD.
Try to install Win 7 on it.

If the installation doesn't see the SSD, I would say it has a failure.
Remember, Samsung EVO 840 SSD has 5 years warranty.

Ok mate well the choice is yours as to how you prepare the SSD and for me a format is just not good enough.

I have cleaned quite a few of my SSD's albeit only a couple of times and never with clean all in DISKPART which will overtax the SSD blocks or certain ones of them.

But the choice is yours of course and I do stand to be corrected on what I have stated.
