Hey guys, first time posting here after hours of continuous trouble shooting with my interesting problem regarding the installation of an SSD.

I just received a G751JT-CH71 today along with a Samsung 850 EVO SSD. Computer runs flawlessly with the factory 1tb 7200 RPM drive, however, when attempting to install an SSD I am having no luck.

The SSD does not show up as an available Boot option but is visible in the BIOS Sata configuration as a Serial ATA Port. It also shows up in the Device Manager under "disk drives," however, when attempting to create a volume label under Partition manager it doesn't show up at all. AHCI is set, I have tried updating BIOS, SSD is compatible, I'm not sure what is going on...

USB drives also do not show up when I try to boot an ISO, have tried several working USB 3.0 drives...

EDIT: What I also find odd is I have several large partitions that were not created by me such as C (334gb), F(93gb)m D(537GB), G(127gb) and several others. THis computer is right out of the box...
Any ideas guys?

Thanks in advance for the help!
