Dead SSD after formatting? Can't contact HP invalid serial numbers

HP Recommended
Liteon ca1-8d128-hp Solid State Drive
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

I tried to reinstall Windows on my OMEN by HP - 17-an013ur to SSD liteon ca1-8d128-hp, deleted all partitions including HP service parts with standard Windows formatting tool and my SSD became unavalible to futher formatting and installation of Windows. Before my attempt to reinstall Windows SSD worked just fine without any problems. Tried diskpart clean, tried wiping with other programs. NOTHING... the partitions remain and cannot be deleted! HP diagnostics detects this SSD and says there are no errors.

 

Can't make USB recovery tool to try factory reset because serial numbers and product numbers don't match.

 

Diskpart and Win disk Management say the drive is read only. I tried to change that with diskpart "attributes disk clear readonly" and it doesn't work. Is there a way to remove the read only?

 

I need to understand if there is any chance to restore functionality of my SSD or I have to buy a new one and replace it. I did not do anything except for trying to completely format it with standard Windows tool.

@Stan2021 

I'm confused by what you wrote ...

 

If you were able to install Windows on the SSD without problems, then why did you then remove all the partitions from it? That does not make sense.

 

Also, how can you run Diskpart on it, if you are booting from it?

 

You must be booting from a different drive and if that is the case, then download and install MiniTool Partition Wizard and use that to reformat and repartition the SSD.  You can get it from here:  MiniTool Partition Wizard

Can you put back the original drive and add the ssd as a second drive and see how it works under windows.  If you have enough room on the new drive you could try cloning the existing drive onto it. There are lots of videos on cloning and cloning software on youtube, most have a 30 day trial.
