    Thank you, so that was the working SSD for that laptop.. But Now the laptop does not see it...

    Diskpart sees the SSD - Disk 0 ( but does not see the active partition or volumes )

    How did you get into X Command - setup media or recovery?

    you can try booting setup media and when at install screen hit F10 to bring up a prompt and run these commands one at a time

    bootrec /FixMbr
    bootrec /FixBoot
    bootrec /ScanOs
    bootrec /RebuildBcd

    I got to Recovery via setup media (USB).

    F10 doesn't seem to do anything. However, I just clicked "Repair this PC" then advanced, command prompt. From there I ran the commands you mentioned - the last two both give this error:

    Total identified windows installations: 0

    And after a reboot nothing has changed.

    Your PC knows the disk is there but can not read it... Disk issue or PC issue????

    Disk is readable we already know that..

    Click Install - does the setup media - see it

    copy this txt file - rename to config.cmd - put the file on your setup USB - then run "config" this file from command prompt
    since we know the disk is MBR - this will file will tell us how the PC is booting

    It returns this:

    "THIS COMPUTER BOOTED VIA BIOS MODE"

    And this is what it returns regardless of whether I set UEFI to enabled or disabled in the BIOS.

    everything appears right.. Bios Mode - MBR partitions - Readable Disk - Getting to the point of PC issue, not sure what else to tell you..

    when in the enclosure you can see the files - or you can actually open the files in windows

    I've just had a new SSD delivered (128GB) so I will see if it lets me install Window to that...

    See and open. I already copied some important text files from there into my cloud drive for safekeeping. They seem fine, not even corrupted.
