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 :)
