Bios does not recognize new SSD

2020-08-13, 21:35 PM

I've got a gaming desktop Legion T530-28ICB, which has a 128GB SSD PCIe and two SATA disks. As the free space on the SSD is becoming very short on these days, I bought through amazon.co.uk 2 SSD disks from Dogfish Technology (one with 500 GB and the other with 250GB).

As I removed the old SSD and was preparing to install Windows 10 on the new SSD (I had an image of Win10 in the DVD Writer) I discovered that when windows launches the setup for installation and asks where I want to install W10, the only drives that appear in the listing are those of the HDD's. In the BIOS, although SSD m.2 appears listed in the startup devices, it does not show the serial number, as it does when is installed the original SSD.

Now I'm very upset since I spent almost 140 euros on these two SSD's and now neither of them is showing on the setup, so that I could install W10 on it.

Any ideas? I just do not know what else to do.

Thanks in advance everyone.

Thanks for the link with tips for solving the problem. 

However I don't even reach the point of having Windows 10 installed and operational to issue those commands. 

My problems begins earlier, when I have no system at all installed, and try to install it in this new SSD,  which does not appear in W10 setup. May be these SSD's are from a manufacturer not compatible with LENOVO?

I think it was my mistake when I ordered these SSD's.

 

As far as I'm concerned the SSD interface of the LENOVO's motherboard is M.2 PCIe. The SSD's that I bought are M.2 SATA. I believe that they are not compatible.
