2nd drive install issues with Dell 9550 (p56f001)
I was hoping someone could provide me with their experience when installing a 2nd hard drive on their laptop.
My laptop came with the NVMe SSD (256GB if that is relevant) and the smaller battery so that there was room for a 2.5" drive.
I am attempting to install a 2.5" SSD. I have the cage, grommets, and interposer. The interposer seemed to connect correctly but the SSD isn't being recognized.
I have verified that the SSD works fine (I put it in an external USB enclosure and tested it), so there is no issue there.
I feel like it is one of three issues:
- The interposer is bad (or not the correct one).
- There is a BIOS setting that needs to be changed (currently set to RAID On, as it was shipped. Changing it prevents Windows from loading)
- There is an issue with the motherboard preventing it from working correctly.
I'm hoping or (2), but would be happy with (1), I just wish there was a way to test it. There are several options available on Amazon that come with the interposer. If anyone has a recommendation I'd be happy to take it.
Thanks in advance.
