The Super Talent SSD
I installed into my dad's Dell Mini 9 was having read errors and I couldn't successfully reinstall Ubuntu due to an issue with installing the bootloader.
So I decided the SSD
needs to be replaced (its about 4 years old now) and I purchased the Crucial m4 32GB SSD
However, when I try to install Ubuntu from the USB liveCD it does not see the SSD
I emailed Crucial and the tech emailed me back that I need to initialize and format the SSD
prior to use, but I'm thinking perhaps the SSD
is not compatible with the Dell Mini 9.
Can anyone confirm this or at least tell me how to format the SSD
