Dell Inspirion 15R-5537 New SSD not detected during windows 10 fresh install

My 1TB drive broke so i decided to buy a 240 gb SSD from kingston when i try to install windows 10 from a usb stick i can't install windows onto my SSD as its not detected and needs drivers. I tried installing multiple drivers so i don't think that's the issue. I've also checked if the SSD is broken by connecting it to my desktop and it showed up so the SSD isn't broken. Any replies would be appreciated.

I do not have the answer to your problem, but I wanted to mention that I had a similar problem when trying to upgrade my Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 HDD to SSD using a Kingston SSD (120GB A400 SSD 2.5'' SATA 7MM 2.5-Inch SA400S37/120G). The problem persisted when using a different Kingston SSD. I'm interested to see what could be the problem.

Your System in set up in RAID mode, so when you reach that install window that you don't see your SSD, you need to click on the, I have a driver or something like that and direct it to the IRST driver you downloaded and have extracted to the same USB Thumb drive you installing windows from.

The on you want is     f6flpy-x64.zip unzip it to a folder on the same USB Thumb Driver you Created using MCT https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

After creating the USB create a folder IRST and unzip the f6flpy-x64.zip into that folder so that you can browse to it. Once you do that your SSD Should show up as a volume to install too.
