Hi, I'm trying to install an SSD drive and failing, I've not done it before so must be going wrong somewhere.

My sons's laptop screen broke, so we retrieved the SSD with an intent to install it as the sole ssd in a spare laptop i have.

I swapped the ssd over and booted from a usb stick with a windows ISO but ssd was not detected.

So I read about firmware and downloaded a firmware iso file from samsung website, burned to a disc and booted off this with the ssd installed, but ssd is not detected by the firmware installer.

I've googled alot, but everything is about installing ssd as a secondary drive, with a sata - usb cable, which we don't have.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, Kris
