HP Envy H8-1423 with Intel 730 ssd

HP Envy H8-1423
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I bought an Intel ssd 730 240 for my computer HP Envy H8-1423. I installed it with both cables, and when I turn on the computer, I cannot see it with disk & file Explorer. However when I go to the peripheral manager and the disk reader, I can see it is there. Also, I have loaded the Intel SSD toolbox, I can see the SSD but it says it has no partition. The Intel migration software does not see the SSD. I do not know where is the problem. Does that mean the Intel SSD is not compatible with my computer or do I have to change the UEFI settings, it uses actually the RAID, should it be AHCI or something else?

Thanks

You cannot change uefi settings or it will not boot.

 

Try a different sata port on the mobo.

 

What do you plan to use the drive for?

Thanks for your reply.

 

I already tried different port but with no success.

 

I want to load Windows on it and have it as the main disk for general use. The actual Seagate HD is slow...

 

One thing I have done is to partition the disk with window and that works, so I can see it with file Explorer. The next step is to see it with the Intel Data migration tool which is not the case for the moment...
