on my z50-70 with i5 I changed stock hard drive with Kingston SSDNow UV500 240GB. Boot is stack on Lenovo logo - nothing else. Bios is not starting. When I return HDD and put SSD in SATA to USB dongle I can boot from it. If I set booting and while turn off change disk to SSD - same Lenovo logo while start. On SSD I have already installed operating system and I can boot it from USB.
- Bad internal part?
- Not compatible with my sata type connector
- bad setting in bios?
I am not bios and PC type expert. Sata is AHCI, boot legacy for my normal HDD with Win 10.
Thank you for help and any advice.

I assume your original 1tb HDD with licensed copy of Win10 is working. If that is so, connect the HDD in laptop and boot normally. Download Trial version of Ease-US Todo Backup and install. Put the SSD in a external casing and connect on USB 3.0 port. Open Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Disk Management. Detect the SSD drive in it and convert it from MBR to GPT Drive.
Exit Administrative Tools; run Ease-US Todo Backup. You will find a "Clone" option therin. Run Clone, choosing HDD as Source Disk and SSD as target disk. The operation will take around 30-50 min. to complete (90-150 min. if you have connected the SSD in USB 2.0). After completion shutdown the system. Replace HDD with SSD, and it should boot with all your personal setting intact.

I have tried everything with my T560 and still get errors (0x80070057)
Using Media Creation Tool 1809, Win10 64bit
Kingston 250GB A400 SSD
Used Kingston SSD Manager - Up to date (was up to date)
Bios settings have been changed, many times, many combonations
Checked the SSD Update Utility offered here under Storage https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-...
Old HDD can still boot up fine.
Any other suggestions?
