New bios update does not allow the SSD to be used, any idea how this is fixable ?

I am pleased to report that using these instructions on June 2019 I have successfully replaced the hdd with a ssd on Samsung Series 5 model NP520U4C-A01UB. Used samsung’s official disk copy utility. It first recreates exactly the same partition size but I was able to shrink the windows partition using linux’s gparted then install ubuntu 19.04 from a usb thumbdrive. For installing from usb thumbdrive it seems uefi and fastboot should be disabled and the boot order should be placed where the usb is the first to boot (watch out for the boot order changing with any install attempts). Thanks for posting this guide; the ssd makes a huge difference in performance :)

During removal of the hard drive, i accidentally pulled the cable out of it’s connection to the motherboard.

At first, i thought i damaged it as it looked like I pulled the ribbon cable out of it’s connector that also fell out of the motherboard.

When looking at replacement connectors, it appears that it is not terminated with a connector - just a flat ribbon.

Has anyone pulled their cable out of the motherboard connector, and is there any trick to getting it back in?

best strategy: carefully unlock the ribbon cable motherboards connector by its upper part 90 degrees into an upright position. Then pull out the ribbon cable completely by removing the harddisk tray assembly including the cable harness. Then unplug the connector on the hdd side. This procedure does less stress to the sensible ribbon cable.
