I'm trying to get a Samsung ssd (970PRO 1TB) running with ubuntu 14.04. The ssd is recognised in bios menu, but after ubuntu is loaded (from a separate HDD) I cannot see the ssd (via usb). I believe the NVMe driver is already on the 14.04.

  • Set AHCI in UEFI. Upgrade to a supported release. – GabrielaGarcia Jul 12 at 15:31
  • thanks for reply. My present computer uses BIOS, and I don't want to upgrade to higher release, as everything I have (apart from the ssd) works very well for me. Upping from a lesser release presented lots of problems for me. I'm sticking with 14.04, thanks. – Bryan W Jul 12 at 15:51
  • Unsupported releases do NOT receive security updates. They become more dangerous to use with internet connection as time passes. There's NO reason not to use a currently supported release and it has nothing to do with the firmware type. – GabrielaGarcia Jul 12 at 15:56
  • Again, AHCI. Then you also need to have a partition table as GPT In the NVMe drive, I think. Read something about those only supporting GPT. – GabrielaGarcia Jul 12 at 16:06
  • OK, but where to change to AHCI? not in my BIOS – Bryan W Jul 12 at 16:24
