Help! Novice, here.

I thank you in advance for your help.


I just finished cloning my old hard drive to my new M500 SSD. I have a macbook Pro and I verified that I did this correctly by setting it as the startup disk while it is still connected via USB. Boots fine, fast everything's good. Then I actually opened the comp up, took out the old hard drive and installed the new SSD... when I turned it on and tried to boot.. it was as if it did not recognize any hard drive being in there at all. Can anybody help me with this?

Hi guys,


When booting up the system can you press the options key to take you in to the boot options screen.  Please check to make sure the boot priority is correct so your system is booting from the new SSD.


If the M500 does not show in this page please remove the drive and install it again, it could be that the drive is not connected correctly to the system.


Please let us know how it goes.
