System not seeing SSD drives

HP Recommended
pavilion dv7 xg300av

I am trying to install any version of Windows to an SSD. I have a couple drives to choose from. However, the system will not see any SSD. Anyone have any thoughts? Google has been unkind thus far.

Hi,

It looks like your laptop is from a Dv7-5000 series and it supports 160GB solid drives.

I'd perform a hard reset.

Hard drive test in the BIOS might also help.
