Ideapad 305 305-15IBD - BIOS not detecting SSD


I have cloned the old 1TB HDD that came in this laptop, to a new Samsung SSD 850 Pro.

I have installed the drive, and it won't boot.
Before trying all the usual cloning issues, drivers etc, I went into the BIOS, and the BIOS is not seeing the SSD.

I updated the BIOS to the latest version, and still nothing.
I have installed the SSD in another laptop, and its fine, I have put it in a caddy and onto this laptop with the original disk booted, and it sees the disk - it just doesn't like the SSD installed on the sata port.
Does this version of the BIOS not support SSDs?


Any ideas greatly appreciated.
