x220 msata ssd 480GB? and recovery

Hi all,

I tried to upgrade my x220 and I've successfully install my "Crucial M500 480GB mSATA SSD" .

I can see it when press F12 on the bios screen, and I've update my bios to 1.39 firmware.

However, I cannot see the harddrive after I enter win 7.

Does anyone have some suggestion?


Also, I just burned my recovery disc into an USB harddrive and try to recovery it to default.

when I press F12 on the bios screen and click "enter" on the USB harddrive, it showed "Invalid partition table"

(I can open the recovery harddrive without an issue)

What should I do?


Thank you all.
