Hello everybody. I guess to know if I can upgrade my current HDD, (1 TB) mounted on my HP Pavilion Desktop PC 570-p031NL, with a HP SSD S700 (Sata 3, 1Tb).
I ask this as I tried to upgrade my desktop buying a Samsung EVO 870 SSD, but it failed post as reported in HP blocking SSD topic . As this desktop does not have a PCI slot available (the only one available is occupied by the RADEON GPU), the solution descripted in that thread is not available. (current Fw version is: 82FE F.02, so the oldest one)
I would avoid buing a second device that is not supported by my desktop (even if it is an HP SSD!), so before buying it I wanna know your opinion. Is there any chance to use the Samsung EVO one or should I buy the second (HP) one or just leave my current HDD?
Thank you for your support!

How do you connect new SSD to SATA slot ?

Hello Banhein, I cloned the original Hp Hdd to the Samsung one using an external USB adapter. Cloned succeeded. Then I simply swapped the hdd replacing it with the ssd using the same cables. So in the end I got the ssd connected instead of the hdd one.
Before doing swap I edit bios config to disable secure boot (not sure to be honest if I also enabled legacy).
Ask me for more info if needed.

This might be the difference
HP uses a Silicon chipset SM2258XT
Samsung MKX Controller
But probably you have more than 1 SATA connector. You can try this:
Run the system from your HDD and connect the SAMSUNG to a 2nd SATA port
Does the machine boot and will the Samsung be detected in the device manager?

Hello VH2000, thank you for your reply. I have not performed that check in the past, but i may try. Unfortunately, the PC is at my parent's home, so I will try next days, when I will go there. For what I can remember, there are 2 out of 4 sata connectors occupied on the mobo. Each of them connects HDD and CDRom respectively to the mobo.
