If this happens:
-Open Computer Management.
-Go to "Storage," and then "Disk Management."
-When Disk Management opens, a pop-up should appear and prompt you to initialize the SSD.
Select MBR (Master Boot Record) and click OK
-Where the SSD appears (the name should show as a model number; a mix of letters and numbers), right-click on the section that shows the "black bar" and says "unallocated." (ONLY the unallocated one should be chosen).
+DO NOT right-click the smaller gray box on the far left; it is not the "target." Only right-click the "unallocated" box that has a black bar above it.
-The New Simple Volume Wizard will open, click Next.
-Leave the Specify Volume Size as the maximum (default value) and click Next-
-Select a Drive Letter and click Next.
-In the Format Partition screen, decide on a Volume label (the name you want to give the drive) and click Next.
-I hope this will help you.
The new SSD replaced the HDD in my laptop, which now boots up 5 times faster. It's a powerful gaming computer and some games which take 3 minutes to load now do it 5 times faster! Love this SSD!
I am here cutting and pasting some info from Avsim forum (a flight simulator forum) which helped me:
I'm posting this so a forum search by someone may help them install a SSD in their system.
Having changed my Windows system and FSX installations from HDD to SSD the speed increase is tremendous in: 1) system reboot and 2) booting up a new flight in new location with heavy scenery.
Here's the web place that goes through how to do the HDD to SSD upgrade painlessly:
How to Migrate Your Windows Installation to a Solid-State Drive by Matt Klein
Google Search the line above, Amazon does not allow direct links in reviews.
First, make a Windows recovery drive (takes 3 or 4 minutes):
Windows recovery drive: you will need a dedicated USB thumb drive to make it. I needed one badly it turned out and had one all ready. So buy a cheap USB thumb drive (any size) when you buy the SSD.
1) First boot the system into BIOS and make sure the system boot choices include a USB drive and the computers hard drive. You need to make sure the system will boot from a USB drive or you can't use the recovery drive which is on the USB thumbstick.
2) To make the recovery drive follow the links from Klein's article above to do that. Different links for Windows 7, 8, and 10 in his article.
I had the following 3 problems not mentioned there, here's how they were solved (thanks to Samsung online chat tech help).
The new SSD did not show up in Windows explorer:
There were two reasons for this:
1) I had the SSD plugged into a USB3 port, it turns out a new SSD often needs a USB2 port. (For a similar reason that when booting up to BIOS, instead Windows, you may need to use an USB2 port for the mouse or keyboard, not USB3, or BIOS might not see it).
2) The new SSD was not initialized in Windows Disk Management. Some SSD's do not require this, mine did (Samsung EVO850 SSD). Otherwise Windows and the computer will not see the new SSD drive.
In order to initialize the new SSD disc you run diskmgmt.msc
Windows 8.1: type WindowsKey + R or from the desktop open the Start button and type in diskmgmt.msc
Windows 10: simply right click the start button and Disk Management is a shortcut to choose
Click open diskmgmt.msc
the new SSD drive icon is going to say unallocated, Now you right click on it and select, “new simple volume”.
This basically takes you through a Windows wizard which prompts to format the unit properly to get the drive recognizing in windows explorer and disk management properly as a healthy partition. This is the initialization process and only takes a minute to do.
3) After following all the steps on Kleins page to clone the HDD image to the SSD, I removed the HDD from laptop and plugged in the new SSD there. The system would not boot ! :(
Here's where the Windows recovery drive (on the USB thumbstick) saved the day. Just turn off the laptop with its power button, insert USB thumbstick you made the recovery drive on and boot. There will now be listed choices from what to boot Windows from: A USB drive, the new SSD, and maybe other choices. Choose the new SSD drive and Windows booted up fine.
From then on, the recovery drive thumbstick will not be needed to use the computer, but keep it in a safe place, and label it for what it is. No other files should ever be added onto that thumbstick.
Three copies of anything you care about — Two isn’t enough if it’s important.
Two different formats — Example: Dropbox and DVDs, or hard drive and memory stick, or CD + CrashPlan, or more.
One off-site backup — If the house burns down, how will you get your memories back?

Previously resource consuming apps like antivirus used to take time to load, but now the apps load quickly.
A must buy, if you need a fast and smooth running PC
Make sure you connect the SSD to a SATA 6.0 (6GBps) port to get the best performance.
I have attached images comparing the speeds of my SSD and HDD using the UserBenchmark and CrystalDiskMark softwares.
Comparison of my SSD and HDD speed:
Samsung 850 Evo 250GB (SSD):
Read: 494 MB/s
Write: 398 MB/s
WD Blue 1TB (HDD):
Read: 180 MB/s
Write: 189 MB/s
Mixed: 176 MB/s
Don't buy an EVO. Look up benchmark reviews. Dollar to speed, I think the crucial drives are a better option, and their warranty isn't worthless.
For what it's worth, the SMART data of the SSD from my own personnal computers show over 40k hours, 5k power-ups, and over 45TB of combined read/write. One of them has been used and abused for half-a-decade, and all of them are still going strong at 100% health. They don't fail, they don't *require* firmware upgrade, they don't BSOD the system; they just works.
The warranty situation is a concern, though. This is the first and last of these SSD that I buy on Amazon, for that reason alone.
One thing to make sure you do before you start. Create a Windows Recovery Drive (on a USB stick) using the standard Windows "Create Recovery Drive" utility. In my case, a Windows 10 Creator Edition 64bit Recovery Drive. For whatever reason, after the cloning operation and replacing the HHD with the new SSD, my machine wouldn't boot from the SSD. Windows said there was a problem with the boot device. I inserted my Windows Recovery Drive (changed the BIOS to boot from the USB drive) and booted the Windows Recovery Drive. There is an option under advanced troubleshooting to repair the C: disk drive (our new SSD). After a couple of minutes, the repair function finished. Not sure what it repaired, but booting the SSD now worked perfectly and has been performing beautifully from then on. In my opinion about 10 times faster than the HHD.
The process of re-installing the OS X may not be straight forward for beginners, however there are plenty of youtube videos that are very helpful. Only thing I may have done differently is purchase the 500Gb version of this SSD instead. (However, if you are tight on cash, 250Gb should be more than enough for the average user).
I used the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F82ThP-6jeA
Tip: Make sure to read the comments of this video if you encounter any problems during the process.
Before using this device first download the samsung drivers for it in MACOS and format it with MACOS-Journal
Then replace the HDD with SSD.
2.USB 3.0 external case needed for connection with the laptop for cloning the existing hard drive.
3.Hard disk cloning/migration software included with ssd. Works brilliantly. Copies your existing os and data.
4.Highly recommended for people with old laptops ,reduces the boot up time to seconds from minutes.
5.My laptop now starts in 15 seconds.
Cabe aclarar que tambien le agregue memoria ram, ahora, en lugar de 4GB tengo 8GB, sin embargo, la mayor velocidad se debe a este SSD. Super recomendado!.
It will download on my old stock mobo at 400 mb's per second. I went from waiting sometimes 2 minutes for stuff to load all the way to waiting at most 12 seconds. After I installed my new Graphics card, the longest I wait now is 7 seconds. It takes 10 seconds to restart my computer, 5 seconds to boot it, 3 seconds to load GTA 5 (About 12 seconds before I installed my Nivida, GeForce GTX 960) and 4 seconds to load Fallout 4 on medium graphics settings, and 7 seconds on max settings. That should give you a general idea of how fast this bad boy is. Keep in mind, load times are affected mainly by SSD however GPU. CPU, and RAM also play a role in this. So times are subject to change depending on system hardware.
CONS: Nothing really.
I highly recommend this. Money wise, this is the best upgrade you can make on your computer if you do a bit of everything on it. Personally I do everything, from social media sites to watching movies to video games. Mostly video games. If you hate loading times as much as me, get this. If you hate low FPS and like good graphics, get a GPU first, then this. Also, keep in mind SSD's are very sturdy and highly unlikely to break down or be defective. Unlike many Graphics cards which have a much higher chance of having problems later down the road or being defective. A bit off topic here, but I highly recommend the Nividia Geforce GTX 960. It runs cool, it is sturdy, and it is well worth the money. Will play anything you throw at it on ultra if you have the processor to keep it from bottlenecking.
