AMD 970 chipset

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a HP Envy h8-1414, which has AMD 970 chip set on the motherboard, it has a six core amd cpu. It is running windows 8 pro. I upgraded the primary drive to a Samsung 840 series 256 gb. It is installed and seems to work.

Then I wanted to upgraded the firmware. I pop in the firmware CD. it says no supported drive found. I also installed the Magician software, the latest version. It says it cannot communicate with the drive. So, I talked to the samsung support. they said AMD is not supported.

So, I don't want to return the PC. the question is, what SSD I should get, it needs to support AMD?

Any pointers? I am not playing games on it. I am planning to run a bunch of linux virtual machines.

thanks
jw

That's hard to believe. I'd call again and talk to a different tech.
