Working Hdd with windows installed does not work in new notebook

January 16, 2013 8:21:49 AM


I have 2 dell notebooks. One new (dell latitude e6530) and a 3 year old (dell precision M6300).

I have an ssd (samsung) installed and running on win8 in the dell precision. Everything is fine.

I have a new, standard win7 installation in the dell latitude. Everything also running smoothly.

Now, because I do not want to reinstall all programms, I want to to simply put the ssd from the dell precision into the dell latitude. (This worked with an asus 2 weeks ago).

However, after inserting the ssd into the dell latitude, it says that he cannot find the hard drive. I tried all possible settings in the bios to fix this (uefi, legicy, sata settings, secure boot), but he still does not find the hdd.

What am I missing? Is there anything else I can try? Formatting of the hard drives?

Btw: Both harddrives have an oem partition.

Any help would really save my day

thx, andrej
