    Try to reboot and see if the changes made will cause Windows to recognize the SSD.

    If that doesn't work, go to Devices and Printers and at the top of the window select Add a Device. It will scan for new hardware. Also go to Device manager and select Disk Drives and expand that, see if the SSD is listed.

    If that fails, we'll try diskpart next.

    In addition to the above.
    You did not fill out your System Specs so we don't know what type of MB you have. AMD or Intel ?
    Try to download & install the chipset drivers for your MB.

    For AMD: AMD Chipsets for Desktop PCs
    For Intel: Intel® Chipset Device Software (INF Update Utility)

    It's an Intel chipset, motherboard is this:

    ASRock > H61M-VS

    I'm now installing the drivers and will restart.

    Well, no success after installing all the chipset drivers. Win10 still can't detect the SSD, even though BIOS does.

    as suggested by Steve (enssenbe). Open Admin Command Prompt and type:
    1. diskpart
    2. list disk


    is your SSD listed ?

    Nope, not listed.

    About half an hour ago I checked to see whether it's faulty, so ran it as a primary drive in AHCI mode. Win10 installed perfectly, in just a few minutes. So drive is fine.

    @topgundcp, what if he installed IRST on his Mechanical drive and switched the bios to AHCI mode? Would that work?

    Hi Steve,
    Not sure if it helps. Normally IRST is needed if you want to set up RAID. Some claims that installing IRST will improve the performance with non RAID setup. I tried it before and it does not have any affect.

    @OP
    You can try to install Samsung Magician to see if it can be detected and check if the firmware is up to date.

    IRST is Intel's Raid driver, but it also has the Intel AHCI driver in it and is the only way to get the Intel AHCI driver that I know of. The switch from IDE to AHCI is always trying to force the OS to install the AHCI drivers.
