I just got a Samsung 860 EVO 500GB for my laptop (Asus TP300LD) to replace the 500GB HDD that was really slow.

When I first replaced the HDD, my SSD wasn't being recognized. So after unplugging and re-plugging a lot of times, searching through forums, I decided to try and initialize my SSD through my desktop PC, then put it back in my laptop.

That didn't work either. I can't install Windows 10 onto my new SSD because my laptop doesn't recognize it. Does anyone have any ideas on what this issue could be?
