SSD Samsung 860QVO 1Tb not recognized on HP Desktop Slimline 260-a102nf

HP Recommended
HP Slimline 260-a102nf


I'm trying to put a SSD Samsung 860 QVO 1Tb in a HP Slimline 260-a102nf (product num Y1E11EA)

the bios uefi does not recognize it, (Bios ROM SSID 821D version F.50 (05/05/2019))

I have no access to boot menu,  Bios UEFI... only black screen (not freezed)


I've tried with an another older SSD model, and all works well (install W10 completed)

but I want to put the 1Tb Samsung in it


it seems that the UEFI does not support this new model of SSD


Thx for answer or tips to try


Edit: Try with a 500Gb samsung ssd 860evo, and same thing,

hp logo, black screen with bios, ram, cpu specs...

no access to boot menu, press F9 or F10 key make message appears "boot menu" but nothing happens

I can't boot on a usb key to make a new windows 10 installation

HP always make special firmware for the disk they put in their PCs

It works with an old 64Gb sandisk SSD (too old and too small for use)


Edit 2 : It seems also working with Crucial SSDs, it works with a Crucial MX300 250Gb

May be it will work with MX500 series but I have not try (Crucial site says it)

This has been a plague for the HP 260 series. I can tell you that Kingston branded SSD will work.

Thx for answer

I've succeeded with a Crucial one (MX300 series)

May be it will also work with MX500, but I don't want to purchase one for test
