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.

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?,
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.
