Hello MSelw, Thank you for your reply. As we understand your drive is not being recognized by your BIOS. Please take into consideration that the process of converting a partition from legacy to GPT should not affect the way that your BIOS detects your hardware and we advise you to try to connect your SSD to another PC, this in order to discard any hardware detection issue from your motherboard. In case that your drive is not detected by the BIOS on either computer, we will appreciate if you can provide us with your product markings (part number and serial number) to check the warranty status and to start the warranty process. We will be looking forward to your reply. Best regards, Josh B. Intel® Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hello @MSelw​ ,

Please download and install Intel Solid State Drive Toolbox: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28447/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Toolbox?product=86825 . Using this application you will be able to check the healthiness of your SSD and update SSD firmware as well.

According to the Toolbox indication, is the SSD firmware updated? If not, my suggestion is to update firmware to the latest version, using  Intel Solid State Drive Toolbox.

Hi MSelw,

 

Could you please let us know if your booting drive is the Intel® SSD 535 Series, or you are using it as a secondary drive?

 

Please confirm if you can see the drive at BIOS level, or if it disappeared completely, even from BIOS.

 

We’ll be waiting for your response.

 

Have a nice day.

 

Regards,

Diego V.
