I have a Acer Ferrari 4000 AMD Turion 64 2GHz, and I'm trying to upgrade the internal HDD to an SDD drive (IDE interface) - it's a Photofast G-Monster-IDE SSD 90R/70W 128GB
The drive is working OK - I have conneceted it to the machine via a USB adapter, and partitioned it with no problem, I've also cloned the existing HDD onto the SSD with clonezilla.
But when I put it in the laptop it won't get past the initial splash page with "press F2 for setup" prompt and nothing happens. If I press F2 to enter the Bios, it just says "please wait" and never enters the bios configuration.
The bios version is S3A27
If anyone can provide advice or assistance I would be most grateful.
