    Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit

    Install a Crucial SSD in a desktop PC with ease

    Installing an SSD in a desktop PC is easy, but it sometimes requires a few special supplies, which is why we created this kit. Included is a SATA-to-USB cable that you’ll use to transfer data from your old storage drive to your new SSD, a SATA-to-SATA cable that you’ll use to physically install the drive, plus a bracket you’ll use to install a Crucial SSD to your desktop’s storage bay. If you’re installing an SSD into a standard OEM desktop (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.) you’ll also need a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch converter, which allows you to secure the SSD to these particular systems’ larger storage bays.

    PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
    • Designed for first-time SSD installers with desktop PC systems
    • Includes a USB-to-SATA data transfer cable, SATA data transfer cable, 3.5-inch adapter bracket, and mounting screws
    • Ideal for use with Crucial 2.5-inch SSDs
    WHAT’S INCLUDED
    • Acronis® True Image HD data transfer software
    • SATA data transfer cable
    • USB-to-SATA data transfer cable
    • 3.5-inch adapter bracket
    • Mounting screws
    • SSD sold separately

    I took the plunge after a year of warnings that my hard drive was failing. I've never done a replacement before so I was looking for assistance. This kit is a must for novices who want to clone a drive.
    What it lacks is useful instructions. I went back to the Crucial site and watched a couple of videos about installation and they used this kit. So, I ordered it.
    Things went quickly and fairly effortlessly.
    In the end the new drive booted first time. But then I would get random crashes. No warning, no feedback on what was wrong. Control Panel would not load. A cold restart and things would work for a while.
    I eventually started removing programs that were running in the background. One of them was the cloning software. I don't know if that was the one, but since I was done with the transfer, I deleted it, among others. No more crashes. Was it the culprit? I have no idea, but I wonder why it was still running. Did I miss some step in the installation? I don't know but that is where some troubleshooting docs would be helpful.

    I am quite livid with the Acronis True Image software that is included. The software provides no instructions whatsoever. I followed the on screen commands to try to clone my drive. They neglect to mention I am supposed to create a bootable media and run off that, and not on the source hard drive.

    You'd think it is a good thing to warn people that this MIGHT destroy your drive. I didn't find all the KB on how to use it after my drive is messed up.

    Well now it completely destroyed the MBR and boot sector and I have failed at every attempt to recovery my data so far.

    Almost Perfect

    Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

    The install went well with the exception of 2 issues.,
    1. When installing the SSD into the original chassis secured on 1 side, the alignment of the edge connector is marginally off to the mother board. This result when inserted it did not allow me to secure the chassis to the base and remains floating. Shims should be included in the kit to allow for this adjustment.

    2. Although I followed the instructions carefully, at the end they talk about installing an additional app that would further increase the speed of the SSD. At the end of the tutorial It left me hanging without knowledge how to proceed. I not sure how much benefit I am seeing with the new SSD? I assume its installed correctly from a software standpoint.

    Using a USB 3 port the whole installation took 15 minutes. Noticed a significant increase in boot time. Well worth the money.

    Different mounting bracket than I expected, but works fine.

    Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

    I bought this adapter set based on the SSD install video saying I needed this to mount the drive in my Desktop minitower.
    The set works well, except for the drive mounting bracket. The video refers to a sort of "housing cage" the drive goes into, while the set I received just comes with a plate the drive screws to. The plate sort of dangles slightly in my desktop's housing, but seems to be rigid enough to work.

    That difference in the mounting plate got a 1-star deduction, everything else works as described.

    SSD won't work right. Freezes continuously. No easy fix

    By Fred

    Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

    This is a problem for just about all SSD drives added to older systems. Crucial does not have a fix. Left it to community support. They are just as confused as everybody else. Calling or chatting with Crucial on Monday 12/11/17. May have to buy a whole new DIY system or return the drive. System did work faster when it worked. Seems to be a compatibility problem. My ASUS board was listed as compatible. Using windows 10. Solutions that did not work included IDE bios setting, removal of backup programs, registry editing. Chat people were nice, but have to go back to them.

    Worked perfectly

    Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

    I didn't need most of the stuff in the kit other than the adapter, but the adapter itself worked perfectly. No issues. If you have a Dell Latitude laptop the whole kit isn't necessary.
