The solution to this problem was given by oldfred in his comment, also in step 8 in the question Acer Aspire E15 will not dual boot. The issue was in the BIOS the SATA Mode setting was set to RST with Optane. Once I set the SATA mode to AHCI Ubuntu was able to recognize the SSD.

When you are absolutely, positively, 101% sure there is nothing you want to save on the HDD, you can obliterate everything on it. But you have to be REALLY sure, because, once it's gone, it's gone. First, load Gparted and look at the drives. There's a spin box at upper right which will show sda or sdb This article shows you tools you can use to analyze ...

In UBUNTU the ssd will have nvme0n[n1]p[n2] as device name and the hdd will have sd[c1][n2] where [n1] is the hard disk number, [n2] is the partition number, [c1] is a letter indicating the hard disk number. Mind that this is related to a HP Omen. Other systems might have an older ssd version: nvme is a M.2 SSD. That is a newer type of SSD. Info from my hp ...

You should be using Rufus to create your installation medium. be sure to configure it to use GPT and UEFI : leave it on Fat32 and things should run much more smoothly from there. ideally, before rebooting to the ubuntu USB and installing, open up a powershell run as Administrator and type: powercfg -h off this will ensure hard drives are shutdown ...

This post may be of help to you. I would recommend keeping your /home folder on the SSD also and use the HDD for extra storage, The reason I say that is a lot of programs use the /home folder for hidden config files and if they have to get it from the HDD you'll notice a slowdown in those programs. But the choice is yours.

Sorry, quite new to AskUbuntu, I've just learned (here) that it's a better option to share a command output with pastebin service. Here you can find the dmesg output: https://pastebin.com/mD71Bs2z

what I suggest you do is to have a single unit where to install the operating systems. So choose whether to use an SSD or an HDD, once chosen creates a USB with ubuntu to format the disk and with GParted creates two partitions one for ubuntu and one for windows. Then use the USB with ubuntu to install it (very important to have the UEFI bios), once installed ...

You've got a single SSD set up in RAID mode, and the Ubuntu installer won't recognize your SSD until you switch your disk setting in the BIOS from RAID to AHCI. Making that switch comes with some problems though, as Windows will no longer boot. You don't need to reinstall Windows... Below, you'll find two different ways to solve this problem. Make sure ...

Turns out that it was locked (saw it after I ran the "hdparm -I /dev/sda" command, thanks to @FedonKadifeli). So then I ran the command hdparm --security-unlock PASSWORD /dev/sda using the password I used initially ("p") and it unlocked. Then I entered the command: time hdparm --user-master u --security-erase PASSWORD /dev/sda Essentially, I had left the ...
