I just bought an OCZ Vertex 4 SSD to go in my dv6t-7000 notebook. The process of swapping out the old HDD and replacing it with the SSD went well. But when I try to install Windows on it, the installer will not find the hard drive. I tried checking the bios to see if it appeared there, and there isn't any place to see what hardware is installed in the SATA ports. If anyone from HP could help me out with this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

I am also having an issue with a new ocz vertex 4 in my G6262 149wm. Upon power up I get a message that no boot drive is found. Ctrl-Alt-Delete allows disk to boot and runs fine from there. System will restart but will not start from shutdown. I have updated the ocz firmware and flashed the most recent BIOS for my system. I have also changed my power options to not put the disk to sleep and updated all drivers. Any other ideas would be much appreciated!

I have an OCZ Vertex 4 (500gb) in my dv6t-7000. Rather than installing it and then trying to install Windows, I just used AOMEI Partition Assitant (free for the personal version) to copy the OS from the stock HD to the SSd. It worked perfectly and my laptop is noticeably speedier (as confirmed by the Windows Experience -- from 6.3 to 7.2 for the HD measurement. I've dropped SSDs into HP laptops using this techniqute before.
