I have been working with SSD drives trying to slide them into older laptops and desktops. So far I've tried 4 drives. One went into a Dell laptop where I was able to load it normally without a problem. Another went into a desktop with a SATA III controller. There I loaded things on a conventional disk then I cloned the drive to the SSD, that worked well.
I've had problems with two MicroCenter G2 Series 64 GB drives in a HP NX7400 laptop. I've tried to use recovery disks to load these drives but they never complete the install. I also tried using a conventional WD Black Drive without any trouble. I tried to clone this onto the Microcenter drives and it failed.
Are these Microcenter drives bad? They don't test out bad? Are SSD's just much more problematic than conventional drives? Any suggestions to make them work?
