Default SSD not detected in BIOS - 04-09-2009, 01:04 AM

Just got my dell mini 9, and I purchased a new Crucial 32gb ssd (I took the cheapest mini with the 8gb ssd).

Bios is not detecting the 32gb ssd. Pop the 8 back in, works fine.

I swapped out the 512 stick for a 2gb stick, both are recognized in bios w/o any issues.

I'm fairly certain it's simply a bad ssd, but thought to post in case anyone else had some other idea.

edit: I should add I googled the problem and searched the forums to no avail. I have bios A04

That's a know issue with the crucial drives. I found some posts about it after I bought one and ran into the same problem. :cry: They say you can still get windows to install, but I sent mine back since I wanted a drive that is recognized correctly. Supposedly, cruical is coming out with a new version that is going to work right and is faster.
