Hello,

I just bought an Intel 530 120GB SSD to replace my old 500GB HDD.

On the HDD i have 3 partition from which the first one, the one with the operation system i want to migrate the SSD.

I use Intel Data Migration software, i complete all the steps, but when i have to select the destination drive, it all greyed out.

I attached a screenshot.

What could be the problem?

Hi bograd,

I am sorry for your trouble but let me help you.

I would like to get more information about the system configuration you have so can you please provide the following?

  1. IS the SSD connected directly to the SATA ports or is it USB connected?
  2. Is the SSD connected to an Intel® SATA port controller or Marvel?
  3. What is the brand and model of the computer?
  4. Is your computer running the latest BIOS? If so, what is the version installed?
