MBR -> Legacy

GPT -> UEFI

Sata mode AHCI for both option.

Format the drive before installing.

I see you still have the drive in raw (no format).

Reset the bios, and then set the boot to UEFI and sata mode to AHCI.

Boot installer, delete any partition in the drive  and format the drive in NTFS (it will automatically convert it to GPT).

When in uefi mode It was able to install windows but it would not recognize the ssd as a bootable device after installation

I think it has something to do with the ssd itself. Is that possible?

 

I tried in my laptop

Desktop

And my old desktop

 

All three can install to a hdd and boot fine but the ssd just wont work.

 

And theres no option for that. It's just not there.

i've installed ssd on a system as old as core 2 duo, even on laptops.

i never had any problems so far.

its either your bios or your ssd.

Unplug every drive but SSD, then try to install.

It's probably something with drive priority (it's in different place in BIOS sometimes than boot order).

Could it be that before all this, I made it a second drive in windows. Even after formatting it in windows installation it still had the same. Same name I gave it.
