Im having an issue booting from the MX500 in a laptop ( ASUS s301lp ). I have replaced hardrive with new SSD. Installed windows using Windows media creation Tool from a usb drive. This has worked flawlessly however when rebooting the computer, it will not recognise the drive as bootable. In BIOS options I have tried turning off secure boot and turning on legacy support (CMS). The bios reports that the drive is connected to sata 0 with ahci protocol however in the Boot order list it is not there. I have also tried installing a live Linux distribution ( gparted live) onto the ssd using a sata to usb connected and tried booting from that with no luck. I also installed the same distribution onto a usb stick to test that it works. Boots from usb stick flawlessly, no luck with the SSD. I have also tested this on a HP laptop with all combinations of secure boot and legacy mode in bios and it will not boot from the SSD either. Any ideas? Im starting to think either the disk is faulty or there is a weird compatibily issue im not aware of.
