Recently I purchased an SSD drive from Crucial to replace and improve my HDD drive on my laptop. I downloaded/used the migrating software recommended by Crucial (Acronis) since it came with a free activation code. However, after following the steps via Acronis and installing the SSD, my laptop is not functioning properly. After anywhere between 1 to 10 minutes of use, my laptop OS (Windows 10) will crash and I have to restart the laptop :smash: 

I think the BIOS is recognizing my SSD as an HDD for some reason too (pics in imgur album). Please help.

Specs:

Laptop: Lenovo V570

Changed: 500GB HDD to Crucial MX200 SSD

Migrating Software: Acronis True Image 2015 (I used the backup and recovery method, by migrating everything to my external hard drive).

Here is the current configuration: http://imgur.com/a/x4JIc

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Hi. . .

 

Be sure that the SSD firmware is updated as out-of-date firmware can absolutely cause BSODs.

The next step here is to bite the proverbial bullet and actually install Windows onto the SSD.

Thank you I will try this when I have time this weekend.

 

When you say install Windows onto the SSD, how exactly do you mean? When I migrated everything from my HDD to my SSD, that had Windows OS on it. How else would I achieve that? Sorry, total newbie here!
