I have totally different question, wondering if you could help me.
I have Dv6t-1300 laptop that I'm trying to upgrade from HHD to SSD ,and every time i turn it on it says no boot device found (3F0) when i put the old hardrive the came with the laptop it boot up to windows. Tested the new drive, change drives and nothing. After doing some digging i learn that i need to go in to BIOS and change the legacy support, but in my BIOS i don't have the option. So i was wondering if there is any fix to this issue.

Thank you for taking the time to respond to me. Yes, I did install an operating system on the drive.
I have tried this on a SSD and HDD and it didn't work. It only recognizes the original drive that came with the laptop.
Do you have any ideas for how I can make this upgrade possible on such an old device or do I need to replace it with the exact same hard drive as the original?

You're very welcome.
Unfortunately, I don't know why you are getting that error after installing a SSD or mechanical hard drive on your notebook.
Any brand 2.5" mechanical hard disk should have worked.
SSD's on those old models are hit or miss, but I can't think of any reason off hand why one wouldn't work, but obviously it doesn't.
