I am trying to fresh-install windows 7 on Patriot PYRO SE in a HP Pavilion M9000T. Windows files were loaded just fine. Then when it got to the step to choose a drive to install the operating system, the SSD did not show up in the drive list. is there anything that i could have done?

By the way, I already changed the sata controller option to AHCI before the installation process had been started.

much appreciate your help.

1) Make sure both sata data and power are firmly plugged in
2) Try a different sata cable. Sometimes SATA cables are bad.
3) Try the SSD in a different computer. Your motherboard may simply not be compatible.
