    hi all.
    i have a dell inspiron 3551 laptop.
    4gb ram intel pentium n3540 cpu.
    the laptop would boot from a 5400rpm hard drive.
    today i removed the drive and put a Samsung 860 Evo 250GB 2.5-Inch Sata Iii Internal Ssd (Mz-76E250Bw) (2.5 Inches).
    when i install windows 10 on it the drive shows in the list of drives to install and installs properly.
    when i click on restart now it gets stuck on dell logo and the drive is not showing in the boot menue.
    but when i try the same drive on a dell vastro 3446 it works properly.
    what may be the problem?
