I have T430 G84
I bought Crucial BX500 2.5-INCH SSD (240) from amazon India yesterday during the BIG sale.
I flashed BIOS to Aug 2019 update i.e. 2.82
From BIOS I ensured that HDD is set to AHCI.
I tried to fix the SSD multiple times in the SATA HDD bay carefully but it's not getting detected in BIOS itself.
I fixed the same SSD in L430 in hdd bay and it got detected in 1st attempt.
Currently I am using Seagate SATA hdd in my T430 so I can confirm that no issue with the SATA port inside the laptop.
Just wonder how to solve this issue thanks.
I tried to Google and tried the solutions but not helping.
As a last resort is it possible to remove the DVD rom > Buy caddy for this SSD > Fix the SSD in DVD rom bay?
Unfortunately I can not return this SSD hence I am trying to evaluate all options.
My current SATA disk in T430 takes almost 2.5~3 minutes to load everything. [Home use]

Just want to check which 1 can help =
9.5 mm = https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00HD7QQQA/ref ... mFbA5RYZ8Q
12.7 mm = https://www.amazon.in/dp/B07N7HZ3PL/ref ... mFbE3ZX570
Apologies, apparently T430 has a 7mm not 9mm hdd bay and my advice was a bad one
I guess in a pinch you could fully disassemble, make sure there is good contact in the connector and try to boot up the opened-up laptop. It would probably be easier to boot the disassembled T430 if it's placed onto a 4337 dock with an external keyboard and monitor connected. Sorry, no better ideas
I have a 7mm SSD in my T430 (in a caddy) and don't have any issues. Of course as long as the SSD is plugged into the SATA port correctly, it should work even if it is not in a caddy. Perhaps you should try installing the SSD in another computer to see if the SSD is bad.
Actually seems you're right.. Apparently T430 indeed has a 7mm bay and you have linked to the right item on ebay. Well there's plenty of them there
I was wrong to suggest https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32788182585.html as it's only needed for T520/T530/W520/W530
The 9.5mm drive will fit in the bay but the SATA connector doesn't line up correctly.
