So I unplugged the default Drive and plugged in a Samsung 840 SSD and build windows, however when I restart it comes up with a drive failed.   Is there a BIOS setting I am missing?   I can't get past the set up screens for the Windows build.

Turn Secure Boot off.  Turn legacy boot on.  SET SATA OPERATION TO AHCI.

Hi Everyone,

Can anyone actually confirm if a Samsung Evo SSD should work in this desktop (Inspiron 3847),

I have one installed in the location of the original hard drive (Sata 0) and when I hit the power button it boots to windows on the SSD, however I am unable to use it as my primary drive as it doesn't appear anywhere in the boot options in BIOS,

I have tried most of the above suggestions but there could be something I'm missing?,

Any idea guys?,

Thanks,

Mr Anthony

SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE250BW 2.5" 250GB SATA works just fine.

Sata Operation must be AHCI

You cant just plug a drive in and it boots windows.

You have to install windows on the blank SSD with the other drive removed.
