u430 Touch - Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSD

Hi, I recently tried to upgrade my u430 with the Samsung 840 EVO SSD (MZ-7TE1T0).

I cloned my current drive to the SSD and changed out the disks.


The problem being, that the ssd isn't recognized.

I updated the bios to version 7CCN62WW but no luck so far.

The ssd is confirmed working with my desktop, and definitly is connected correctly.


Please help.

Hi Blackhawk,


Welcome to Lenovo Forums.


The original SSD for this laptop from Lenovo is:


FRU 16200316 Model Samsung MZ7TD256HAFV

So this model should work perfectly. But any other SSD with 2.5-inch and 7.0 mm height should also work.


The proper installation details is shown in the maintenance manual:


Hope this helps. Please let me know your findings.
