i would secure erase.....but it doesnt show up any where except when you run win recovery cd to format (failed to format) or running windows management. This is what im doing now....I running control panel>administrative tools>computer management/storage/disk managment and is able to detect the ssd as disk#3 119.24gb.
First i had to shrink the partition to 1122099 leaving 3 mb left for it to show up as a disk drive "z:"
Then i am formating it as ntfs/default allocation.
Now its taking aproximatley 45min per % completion. I am at 9%.
Its taking way too long.
