Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52-56XS not finding SSD

heiheiheiheiheiheiheihei Member Posts: 2 New User
I have a Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52-56XS. My internal drive is busted, so I bought a new kingston 480GB SSD to put in it. I boot from a USB with windows on it. But the installer cannot find the drive.

I have tested the drive in other computers and it is found there. Please help. Thank you.

    Hi @heiheiheihei,

    Did you check in the BIOS page.
  • heiheiheiheiheiheiheihei Member Posts: 2 New User
    Yes I did. I reformatted it as NTFS and then as exfat also.... I feel like I've tried everything.

    What mode is shown in the BIOS? If IRST is in Optane or RAID mode you may want to switch it from the Main menu tab.
