@Gio63 

Others may have access to more detailed information, but the only specs I could find show you have a SATA drive in there at present and make no mention of any mSata port in the PC.

See p. 71 of the Manual.

There is an mSATA port but its hard to get to and of limited utility. Post back if you wish to discuss further.

MY PROBLEM IS NOT THE INSTALLATION OF THE HARDWARE BUT THE CONFIGURATION AS A PRIMARY DISK TO INCREASE THE SPEED OF MY PC.

This is possible?

That's the limited utility I was referring to. It can only be the primary disk if it is the only storage device in the laptop. Otherwise the mSATA is designed to be used only as an acceleration cache and the BIOS will prevent it from being the boot or system disk. 

And mSATA is actually a bit slower than the latest generation of 2.5 inch SATA SSDs so the original advice to use a 2.5 inch SATA SSD in the hard drive bay is actually the best advice.

I tried to mount a SAMSUNG EVO860 ssd disk but the laptop does not see it.
I first cloned with data migration provided by the manufacturer and then I replaced the disk but it tells me disk not present.

Note: if I put the diso ssd on another computer everything is ok

Do you also have another hard drive in the computer?

When I did the test with the SSD 860 EVO SAMSUNG disk, I only had the one installed, instead of the old hard disk.
