SSD not recognized in ultrabay on t420s win 7

#1 Post by t420poklop » Fri May 25, 2018 6:24 pm

Hi, I bought new Samsung SSD 860 EVO for my t420s, but I can not see the disk in windows explorer. But when I first booted system with disk in the ultrabay, there was notification in windows bar: "Drivers for Samsung EVO 860 were successfully installed." I can even see the disk in Crystal disc info, but no in windows explorer. Any ideas?

If you go to Computer management and then Disk management you should be able to see the SSD. You can format or partition it then if that is your intention.

Here is good tutorial:
