I have a brand new FreeDOS Acer Nitro 5 laptop with AN515-55 model name and NH.Q7MEY.001 part number. I encountered an issue during Windows 10 installation on the device. While Western Digital's WDC PC SN530 SDBPNPZ-512G-1014 model 512 GB SSD is visible in BIOS, I cannot see it during installation where to select a disk to install Windows 10 on. From troubleshooting in command prompt through "diskpart utility" if I type in "list disk", again I do not see the 512GB SSD. Only one disk with 3817MB, which is presumably my flash drive that I plugged in, shows up. In my opinion, though unsure of it, if the issue was because of a faulty SSD, then I would not even be able to see the SSD in BIOS in the first place.
I looked through the internet for the issue and came upon similar problems that had been solved by "load driver" option during installation by introducing a proper driver so that Windows 10 setup detects disk mounted on device. Therefore, this led me to incompatibility issue. Windows 10 installation ISO file that I prepared on flash drive through Rufus is earlier version of Windows 10, but the SSD on my laptop is up-to-date. For that reason Windows 10 installation fails to detect the SSD.
With these being said above am I right in such a reasoning?
