Can the PSU support both a Hard Drive and an SSD

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Power 580-000 Desktop PC series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Will the stock cables that come from the PSU support both the stock 1 TB Hard Drive and a 240 GB SSD? I got the SATA III cable and plugged into the motherboard but it still does not show my SSD when I look at the storage systems on my PC.

The power supply does not factor into the equation.


Double check SSD SATA and power connections and motherboard SATA connection.


Check the BIOS to see if the SSD is recognized. Select "Storage Menu, "Device Configuration" to see if the SSD is detected.


If the SSD is new (unformatted) you will have to use Windows Disk Management to set the SSD "online".


Use Cortana or Search. Enter "diskmgmt.msc".


The SSD should appear as unallocated space or offline.


Right click and select "online".


Create a new volume and do an NTFS format.


You should now see the SSD in File Explorer.
