Hello Community.

I have a problem, and ive practically done everything possible to solve. I now have to turn to experts to help me further.

I have a SATA 3 6GBPS 240GB SSD, brand new!

Im trying to put this in a HP Elite Small Form factor 8100 PC.

The BIOS cant find the SSD and neither can windows..

So list of what ive tried already:

1.The SSD have been initialized, formatted and assigned drive letter from third party computer (friends) Worked instantly in his
2. 3 different 7 pin ATA cables.
3. 3 different ports tried
4. Updated BIOS to latest available by HP
5. Updated all possible drivers from HP support page
6. Tried IDE/ACHI/RAID
7. I have a seagate 250gb which i have win7 already on, i have tried to put this as primary, but the SSD is nowhere to be found in device manger
8. I have fooled around with boot manager
9.Clean install with win7 pro x64 (cant be found)
10. Shift+f10 with diskpart and list disk (not found)
11. Different 15 pin power supply

This SSD IS A GHOST!! :mad:

i know for a fact that the SSD is 100% working.. This is driving me NUTS!:banghead:

I would literally jump through the roof in joy if someone can tell me how to fix this.. :respect:

Do you have any other HD's hooked up? If so disconect them and any other device thats connected to the SATA. Make sure ONLY the SSD is hooked up into the SATA 0 port or SATA 1 port. Then reset the CMOS. Boot up and report back here.

Ive tried with and without other HD, but now when you mention it, ive always had my CD DRIVE connected to SATA1, and if not the cd drive, i then had the seagate connected..

When you say reset CMOS is that removing the battery for 10 secs ?

That works too, or you can go into the bios and hit Reset to Default or itll say. Reset to Factory Values.

I was also thinking this, but the SSD is backwards compatible, and its a PC from 2012..

I would be okay with not having SATA 3 speeds, at the moment i would accept almost anything.

I cant find anything about the mobo, im getting fed up with HP honestly :(

Normally there is a jumper you have to move over AND disconnect the battery. Then reset the jumper and reinstall the battery. This will do a proper CMOS reset.

Do this once you only have the SSD hooked up. Nothing else.

That works too, or you can go into the bios and hit Reset to Default or itll say. Reset to Factory Values.
No that doesnt do a proper reset.

I was also thinking this, but the SSD is backwards compatible, and its a PC from 2012..

Is the firmware updated on the SSD?

And I am still curious if you updated your SSD firmware for that board....? http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...wLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=vc-100296-1
Beat me to it. lol

Because you have to kill ALL power. Anything left over can preserve corrupt info. Thats the whole reason they have the jumper there to begin with. A simple push button reset just sets things to default. Doesnt fix anything deeper then a bum setting.

Ive tried to download this, boot up with my seagates win7, but when trying to run it i receive error with "This does not meet your minimum requirements" if i remember correctly

:( I can hook up the seagate and try run it again and supply you with exact error message if that would help

EDIT: Hooking up win7 again, and trying to run the exe file

Is the firmware updated on the SSD?

Honestly i dont know.. I presumed that since it worked flawlessly on another PC system.

Not always. Just because it works ok on one PC just means that firmware works on that PC. Not yours maybe. This is why I suggest you upgrade the firmware on the SSD.

YOu will probably need to take the SSD out, boot to it in a different system that works with it, update the firmware for it in that system, then move it back into this one.

When you boot to Win7 on the seagate and try to update the firmware of the SSD it is trying to update the seagate, not the actual SSD which is leading me to think you need to be able to boot to the SSD to be able to update it.

YOu will probably need to take the SSD out, boot to it in a different system that works with it, update the firmware for it in that system, then move it back into this one.

When you boot to Win7 on the seagate and try to update the firmware of the SSD it is trying to update the seagate, not the actual SSD which is leading me to think you need to be able to boot to the SSD to be able to update it.
This.
