Dell Inspiron 7559 m 2 SSD upgrade failed / not recognized

This question is not answered

Hello,

Recently I bought the Dell Inspiron 7559 (gaming one).

It has the option to add a SSD drive. I bought a m.2 SSD 256gb drive from Plextor.

See link for the version. The BIOS and Windows both don't recognize the SSD.

I have put it in and out several times. Updated BIOS / Resetted BIOS. It just won't recognize it.

Do I have to tweak any settings in BIOS for the SSD slot to "activate"?

I thought this was a plug and play thing. How can I get this to work?

Note: I also have my HDD still plugged cuz it has everything on it (windows etc).

I want to convert windows to the SSD if it CONNECTS EVER.

SSD:

Help would be appreciate SOOO MUCH.

Thanks in regards.

  • That's a PCIe SSD -- this system supports mSATA (SATA 6G), not PCIe.  You'll need to exchange the drive for an M.2 SATA/SATA6G version.

  • Oh wow, imma get a mSATA one and update this post

  • Make sure it's M.2 SATA -- not the older, wider mSATA card.
