I purchased a Samsung SSD 840 Evo to put into a Toshiba C855D. This machine was taken out of commision by a blow to the backside which resulted in a clicking hard drive that would not boot.
I have placed the Samsung in the machine and the BIOS recognizes it.
i thought i would start with Linux on a USB to see if the machine will still work.
Do i need to do anything to the drive?
Can I install an ISO for Linux Ubuntu on the memory stick and get this machine back into a useable state.
I thought I would eventually install a windows, but may not need to.
Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated and I apologize if this entry is in the wrong forum.
