I have a 17.3'' Predator G5-793 that came by default with the 1 TB HDD.
Soon I added another 120 HDD for the OS (win 10) in the m.2 slot. This works correctly.
Now, i wanted to remove the 1 TB hdd and replace it with a SSD Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SATA-III 2.5 inch. Removed back thing, replaced unit.
When I try to open the laptop now, I'm stuck at the Predator logo (I cannot go to BIOS or any boot menu).
If I remove the new SSD and leave only the old SSD with the OS, Windows starts.
I thought that the windows reserved partition is the issue as it's on the old HDD, but the fact the windows will load only with the old SSD in it, kinda blows that theory away.
if there anything I have to do to the new SSD before putting it in?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated!
