Angry mini 9 Will not boot with new 32Gb ssd - 02-03-2012, 02:17 PM

hi have a mini 9 that as far as i knew had a faulty ssd. I removed old drive and it booted fine could install to portable ide drive and from usb. Purchased new drive from Memory C installed and the best i can get is a slight flash from the display. If i remove the drive it boots normally and can choose boot order etc. Have set to boot from cd caddy but only flash on screen . Please help whats the most likley faulty drive or faulty dell ?

I recommend this for any SSD drives 8GB and higher:

Quick TFTPD32 Win Setup PXE Boot To deploy Ubuntu 11.10
Change DHCP tab setting to fit your needs.
Check TFTP tab shows "Bind TFTP" as your deployment computer IP.
