I have a Gateway NV59c laptop, and on this site I have a compatibility guarantee for the Crucial MX100 500 GB SSD I picked up.
I used Acronis to clone the drive. When I hook it up via USB with the Crucial adapter kit, I can see the drive is cloned. However when I remove my current HDD and replace it with the SSD, the computer doesn't even get to the BIOS screen, it just shows the Gateway splash, says hit F2 for Setup, but it won't respond to F, it shuts off and restarts. Rinse, repeat.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?
Thanks for contacting us.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Should I defrag both partitions before installing the new SSD, or not bother?
