    I have a bootable DVD of Windows 10 Enterprise edition. The install begins but when time to pick location to install Windows no drive is available. Bios sees my drive as HDD0. My SSD is a samsung 850 EVO. I removed the 3.5" SATA drive from my Dell T5600 and replaced with the new drive. Any help would be great!

    The first thing to check when switching from an HDD to an SSD is to verify that in your BIOS the storage controller is set to AHCI mode. If not in AHCI mode it likely will not recognize the SSD.
