I bought an older Thinkpad W500 which has windows 7 and a HD with the intention of installing Fedora/linux. I have done this before on another windows laptop.
This time...i purchases a new crucial SSD. I took out the old HD, put in the new SSD. The computer boots fine to the Fedora Live CD...but when I go to install to hardrive, there is no way to select the SSD drive...it says no hard drive detected.
I saw a similar post here where the solution was to go to the bios and change the SATA setting to AHCI or something...but mine is already set to that.
I am wondering...since its a new SSD...do I need to initialize it or something...not sure what the issue is..thanks.
