As the title would suggest, I am having trouble booting from my new SSD that I installed in my ASUS R500V K55VD today. I have been running Ubuntu on the HDD since I got the laptop, but I wanted to upgrade to an SSD. I installed the SSD in a caddy that slots in to where the DVD drive was.
When entering the BIOS I can see that SATA is in AHCI mode and that my SSD and HDD are both being discovered, however I cannot see a boot option for the SSD; only the HDD has an option. I cannot see a way to add my SSD to the boot list.
Booting in to the Ubuntu 13.04 live USB I can see that the OS installed itself on my SSD, but I simply cannot get the BIOS to boot from it. Has anyone else had any problems using two storage devices on this laptop that can shed any light on this?
I also tried using the suggestions in this question, but I still end up at the grub rescue prompt :( I have the following layout:
- 512MB /boot
- rest /media/data
- All /
I have tried installing the bootloader in the /boot partition and just directly in sda with no observable difference.
