300-221 m.2 is not detected on BIOS

HP Recommended
Pavilion 300-221 Mini Desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hello all,

 

I just bought mini desktop and ADATA m.2 128GB from Amazon to replace boot disk.

However the BIOS said it found some issue from some storage device(might be newly installed m.2 SSD) and SSD is not showing up. After ignoring the warning, PC successfully boot the MS Windows 10 as usual. 

 

MS windows also does not show new storage(of course as BIOS failed to detect it)

 

I am not sure the m.2 SSD is faulty. However as there any way to check what is wrong with it?

 

This is the m.2 SSD I bought

 

ADATA Premier SP600 128GB M.2 2242 Ultrabook Compatible and Excellent Read up to 550MB/s Solid State Drive (ASP600NS34-128GM-C)

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

The following link show specs of your computer. 

 

    http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c04827060

  

It has

 

  • Expansion Slots:
    • One M.2 socket 1
    • One M.2 socket 3

 

Which one do you use ? Have you tried socket 3 ?

 

Regards.

BH

Hello,

 

Seems that a wifi module already occupy one m.2 slot.


from http://support.hp.com/rs-en/document/c04827060

Integrated Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n featuring 2.4 GHz 1 x 1 technology

Interface type: M.2

 

I just installed ADATA SSD to one available slot which has longer than the wifi installed m.2 slot.

Hi,

 

The wifi card is on socket 1 and :

 

   Socket 3 is designed for SSDs (both SATA and PCIe, up to x4 performance)

 

Please check the following discussion:

Thanks for the info.

I already read that case and did not get what happened after replacing SSD as the poster does not write it.

 

I just bought ADATA as some person has no issue at all in using the same SSD model with the same HP PC.

 

This is my case.

BIOS told me he found something in the storage slot but has some issue

And BIOS does not show the installed SSD.

So replacing SSD is the only one option I can try?

what version of bios are you using?

if it is 0.11, it does have detecting problem of m.2 ssd.

some people in this forum have same issues, but we cannot go back to ver 0.08, because 0.11 sets roll back limit to 0.10.
