upgrade envy h8 1414 desktop from a HDD to a SSD

ENVY h8 1515 PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to upgrade my Envy h8-1414 HDD to SSD.  I can see the SSD in BIOS.  I cannot see it in any other view (disk management, disk partition, etc.).

Thanks for the reply.  I finally got the system to recognize the SSD.  I basically stumbled across the solution by following another post on how to switch from RAID to AHCI.  My system would keep rebooting and finally ran the HP diagnostics.  On a whim I went through the HP advanced support.  Here I found another way to select AHCI.  Finally my system started with AHCI enabled and I was to initialize my SSD and then clone my HDD to the SSd.

@Rick1120 , welcome to the Community.

 

Do you have the SSD connected to either SATA 0 or 1?  This would be for the boot drive.  Also, check the BIOS to make certain that AHCI/RAID is enabled.

 

Did you clone the HDD to the SSD?
