Is the SSD you used a SATA 3  notebook 2.5" unit? That is the only type that is compatible with your desktop PC's motherboard.

 

The SSD products at the link below are guaranteed compatible with yout desktop PC.

What was the method of installation?

 

Is the original hard disk still connected?

 

What volume type was done on the SSD? MBR or GPT?

Was it the same as the original HDD or not?

i can't change the hard disk on my desktop

i tried different procedure, in all case i set the usb- and dvd as first in the boot sequence in the bios.

 

1

fist test: i  created a recovery usb  with the microsoft tool, i changed the hd with the new ssd, i  restarted it and the desktop stucks on the boot in a black screen

second test: i changed with the old hd, i restarted with the usb of the recovery tool and it  started correctly the recvoery mode

third test: i tried to boot from a  fresh windows 10 installation disk with the ssd disk, and again it stopped on a black screen without starting the installation

forth test: i did the first test, but with the old hd connected and it starts correctly the windows installation

 

 

i ussed two SSD disk , on crucial listed in the supported site of a previsious post and another samsung ... but some behaviour

 

it seems there is on a boot level something that checks the hd.. if it's not the old 7200 rpm it doesn't go on..in the bios i can't see any option on it

 

thanks for the support

Hi All

 

i m still here with my issue.

i bought a new SSD crucial CT500MX500SSD1 ( included in the supported disk for my desktop https://it.crucial.com/ita/it/aggiornamento-compatibile-per/HP---Compaq/hp-260-a110nl).

 

i  replace my old hd with the new one, but it stucks on the following screen, even if i try f2, f10, esc, i don't manage to get inside the bios or move on from it

i update the bios to the newest version, restored the default configuration of the bios..nothing change..
