Hi, Old_geekster. Thanks for this reply, as it seems to specifically answer the exact issue I've been having. I bought a Samsung 840 EVO yesterday, and for the life of me couldn't get it to be recognized...kept getting some error message about IDE.
So your note about BIOS seems critical...but the BIOS on this machine seems to be more elusive. Could you please advise -- specifically -- how to get into the right area of BIOS -- to change to AHCI. I suspect that is the problem and why I've run into the message I'm getting on startup...then I will run Samsung's Migration Program.
Thanks so much for your help!
(Also, does it matter if I format the SSD as MBR or GPT? Existing drive is MBR)

Be sure to go to the Samsung site and download the latest version of the Samsumg migration software and the Samsung Magician. Update the firmware before trying to clone your hard drive. If you read your other post that i had replied to you will note that I suggested using the HP recovery media to load the SSD and not cloning software.
BTW --- Both of my Samsung EVOs needed firmware updates along with the updated Samsung applications.
