Lenovo laptop won't boot from new SSD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone

 

So the problem I'm facing is that when I want to boot from any hdd/sdd that isn't the original HDD the laptop came with it just shows me the boot options but won't boot from any of them.
The laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad 110-15ACL and a friend asked me to upgrade it with an SSD like I've done with a lot of laptops before, but never have I come across this problem.

I Tried installing Windows 10 from a bootable USB and it does recognize the SSD in the installer but won't copy any files. I also tried installed Windows 10 on the SSD trough my desktop and that worked but than when I install it in the laptop it just doesn't want to boot from it.

I already tried changing BIOS options (secure boot, etc) but no luck so far.

 

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure the port is compatible with the SSD interface?

I thinks so, the SSD is recognised in the BIOS

then what's the issue? Select the USB drive, boot into the Windows installer and format the SSD for install

Yeah I know, that's why I'm here ;) 

Like I said it does show up in the installer and after formatting the SSD when it shows 'Copying Windows files' it stays at 0%, no matter how long I wait.

You have an official copy of the OS, right? You're sure the USB stick and USB port aren't defective? You have an internet connection too, I assume

Yup, I used the media creation tool from the microsoft site. Tried 2 USB sticks already and the ports do work.

Is it a SATA SSD or NVMe? M.2 or 2,5"?

Just a normal SATA 2.5'' SSD because the laptop doesn't have any other ports.

I assume it's in the spot where the HDD was before?

correct, and when I put in the original HDD all is fine. (the pc goes straight to windows). I also tried an old 120 gb SSD with windows I have but the laptop doest want to boot to that one either but it does get recognised in the BIOS.
