I contacted Toshiba. They said it would work. I did the bios update and also the intel update you sent me previously. That is why I asked about the bios update. Where else can I go for a bios update. PEerhaps the toshiba website does not have the current bios updates.

IMO, it is a system restraint either the BIOS or the controller chip in the motherboard. So changing the OS may not be a solution.

You may, however, wait to see if anyone else can guide you in this matter.

- Run a System File Check on a cmd window: sfc /scannow

I understood that that your Laptop has a Legacy - MBR BIOS
Try this:
- Remove the Win 7 disk and replace it by the SSD-
- Boot from the Win 7 installation disk, go to install - advanced - delete all partitions- create new.
- Make sure that the partition is less than 2.2T.
- Install win 7 64.
If it works, your Win 7 on the other disk may have a problem

I just ordered windows 7 ultimate as an upgrade. Any other suggestions?
Cancel that order and get your money back! NOW! Win 7 Pro is the only version that can be sold now. Ultimate hasn't been available for a long time now so the one you ordered is probbvly counterfeit.

The Sammy 4TB SSDs will run just fine in Win 7 on a MOBO using a Legacy MBR BIOS. I have four of them running just fine in my machine right now.

Lady, I know that GPT is recognized by Win 7.
As he are having problems with the disk ONLY on this computer, maybe the problem is on the Win 7 installation.
If win 7 installs and work on the SSD, I'll will recommend that he do a Repair installation. Repair Install

In the first post, the OP said this is a data only disk.

Yes, I know, and the win 7 on the other disk may have a problem.
As the disk is blank, why not to give it a try?
