    Question Installing New SSD | Unable to get in to BIOS.

    Hi Guys,

    I just bought a new Samsung 830 SSD (256gb).

    I have tried to install it on to my G75vw but there is a problems :

    1 - I am unable to get in to BIOS (to seclect the boot sequence) for some wired reason. (After i installed i was able to get into BIOS just once and then since then unable to do so - SSD HDD was successfully deceted in BIOS). SSD drive is in the bay right now and i can access it from Windows.

    What i have done is put the new SSD in bay on the right side (this is where the original HDD was that i got with the G75vw). I was wandering if there is any thread that had this issue resolved? If so please let me know.

    Also what i notices yesterday when i booted the PC with SSD in the default HDD bay the PC was running normally - but the default HDD was getting really hot (much hotter after putting it in the secondary bay). Can anyoe advise why is this happening? Do i need to change any config?

    - All of your inputs are greately appericiated.

    the process that works for me every time is to put the SSD in, do a fresh install then plug in the additional disk much later (i have a g55 by the way; and i replaced the ODD bay with a HDD caddy and put a SSD there)

    i think this one might help solve your problem.
