Hi - just trying to install a SATA III SSD (Integral V series) in G550 but keep getting "PXE-E61:Media test failure, check cable" message. SSD works fine when in USB HDD enclosure. Any clues how to get round this? I tried changing the SATA port from AHCI to IDE but same result - looks like SSD just not identified.
Just to add - I updated BIOS and repeated. When I hit F12, SDD is correctly identified - but fails to enter setup, giving above error message.
SDD has clone of HDD on it. Maybe I should try booting off some other device.
Any advice appreciated.

Hi DT88! Welcome to our forums community. Is the SSD detected under BIOS? If yes, check the boot priority. But if not, there is a big possibility that the SSD is not compatible with the laptop.

Hi - thanks for that - initially the SSD was not detected by the BIOS - but turns out it was my fault - I had initialised the SSD as GPT (which I guess would have worked on a newer laptop). When I re-initialised it as MBT the BIOS recognised it and after a few hiccups all was good.
