    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.

    Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

    I used the Desktop install kit to add a new Crucial 2.5" SSD to an internal 3.5" drive bay and used the wiring connector to clone my existing Windows 10 operating system from the HDD to the SSD using the Acronis software downloaded using th link supplied with the kit. To achieve a clean cabling hookup, I do suggest keenly observing the orientation of the SATA connector and the power supply cable connector on the SSD before final mounting of the SSD to the bracket (which must be done prior to mounting bracket/SSD in the drive bay).

    Easy Install Dell Latitude E7450

    Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

    Crucial makes the whole process very straight forward. The only difficulty I had was Acronis had to be modified to clone the installed disk. However it was.a simple operation. On line instructions were excellent but omitted the Acronis problem.

    I only needed the SATA to USB connector to do the installation in a Dell Latitude laptop. No need for the other items in the kit.

        Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

        I tried to use install kit in a maingear custom computer, had problems getting it to fit with the adapter bracket and spacer as well as without it, the mounting screws did not fit into the ssd with the spacer attached. I got one maybe two screws to fit and it would not align with connectors in the slide out drive bay.

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

        The kit was OK but not worth nearly as much as it costs. The only reason I bought it was to get the Cloning software which, it turns out, was not part of the package. It was, in fact, free to download on the crucial site.

            Comments about Crucial SSD Desktop Install Kit:

            The only things I used in this kit were the transfer cable and the SATA cable.The bracket is not suitable for use in a Dell Inspiron 3668. I had to also purchase a different bracket to get this installed as well as a power cable. For a different machine I can see all the parts in this kit being used. Check carefully to see what your machine has already.

            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.
