HP Pavilion. Impossivel to format or Update the BIOS

HP Pavilion Model 11-n041ca

Hello guys im Having a big hard time with my Girlfriend Notebook.

So what happended was..

 

Her HD was making a wierd noise..  Suddenly stops work.. ok

I bought a SSD 120gb. Installed the SSD.. tried to boot the system by USB with windows version 7..8.1 and 10.. no sucess

the BIOS just doesn't regonize the boot..

I tried all formats.. Fat..FAT32.. GPT.. and so on..

 

so i put the SSD in my computer.. and i installed the windows ..everything was working well.. i moved the SSD to her HP .. NOthing.. looks that the HD is empty.. i did all the tests i got "Passed".

 

So ok. lets try Update the BIOS.. the current version is 1.8.0.0

I downloaded the last one.. so when you Boot.. pressing ESQ .. and then F2 it brings me to test page..
So if i press F9 select the USB ..BIOS file.. doesn't work as well it tell me that the Boot couldnt be find..

 

Thank you in advance..

HP Pavilion. Impossivel to format or Update the BIOS

What specific SSD (brand, model) did you install and what is the complete product name or product number of the notebook?  

 

If her notebook is an older one, it probably won't recognize a GPT, UEFI type format. That is if your install was GPT. Was it a GPT or MBR type disk?

 

 The complete Model Name. or Product Number. of the notebook - see This HP web document if you don't how to locate the model number and\or product number.

 

Without being provided with complete information it is more than a little difficult for me to know what your girlfriend's notebook has for a hardware platform, and that is important.
