Idea Centre B550 SSD Upgrade / Firmware Upgrade

Hello, I want to replace my SATA HardDrive for a New SSD Disc. The problem is that the Bios does not recognize the SSD when I connect it, My Bios level is [ICKT23AUS] from 2013... Curiosly the Recover CD's Did the work on recovering the system to the new SSD, but won't boot, since Bios doesn't recognize it as a Sata Drive even changing from IDE to AHCI...  I don't find a new Firmware for this Idea Centre B550 Desktop... Any Idea?

It's possible the CMOS isn't being updated with the hardware change.  With the SSD drive installed try clearing the CMOS.  The clearing process will erase the stored hardware configuration in the CMOS and then do a fresh inventory on the next reboot. 


To clear the CMOS just unplug the power cord and press the power button for 60 seconds or longer.
