I want to change the HDD into SSD

I want to change the existing HDD into SSD. I have cloned it but when I put SSD into HDD slot, it is not bootable and cannot be read by the BIOS. My SSD is Samsung EVO 850 1TB. Is there any limitation of the motherboard?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

According to this supplier they guarantee that their 2TB SSDs will work so it appears that there is no limitation on the motherboard.

As the SSD is not being detected in BIOS, did your SSD come with a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter? (supplier example only)

The adapter is designed to hold a 7mm SSD (which yours is) in the correct position in a 9.5mm drive bay (which your laptop has) so that there is good contact between the SSD and the sata connector in the laptop

Hi jayeff,

Thanks for responding my question. So basically I need to buy SSD spacer from 7mm SSD to 9.5mm. I will look into it first and come back to you ASAP.
