Are there preparatory things that I need to do with the SSD drives
I am missing? Any help would be appreciated.
I know nothing for sure, but I'd
try booting a live CD and
running gnome-disks from it to see what it sees. If it can see
the SSD, then perhaps there are already partitions on it
you could delete to make it a blank disk which the
installer might be more willing to install on.
Thanks for the reply. When I booted to the live f24 CD gnome-disks
does not identify the SSD drive.
I have two of these compaq machines and they are identical, just for
grins I set up the second machine, but unfortunately had the very same
symptoms, and observations as the first.
Both the F24 live CD install disc and the Net install disc present an
option to ADD DISC during the partition assignments. I have never had
to use the 'ADD DISC' option. I have played around with it, but never
could get the SSD to appear.
So far I am having no success with these PNY SSD drives. I installed
one of the SSD's in a different desktop computer that is quite a bit
more recent than those old Compaq units. I was able to recognize the
SSD with the Fedora 24 install process, and the install appeared to
proceed without a problem. However, I could not get the system to boot
the newly installed f24 os. The boot process died after the message
"Verifing DMI Pool Data ......"
I had hoped this would be an easy thing to do, but looks like this is
going to be a real fun project. Any body have ideas?
