Hey guys.

I've had a little look around the forums to see if anyone has had the same problem, but their's seem to always be a little different.

The main issue that people are having is that the SSD isn't being shown on the Windows Installer. I'm not trying to re-install windows, I'm just trying to upgrade my old HDD to the new SSD.

As the title suggests, the BIOS is completely reading the SSD drive, but whenever I go to My Computer or anything, it just doesn't read it.

If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated :)  Thanks in advance :)

Did you format the drive in device manager?
If not -> right click on computer -> manage -> device manager -> select SSD and initialize it -> right click on empty space and choose format.
