      i have an  INTEL SSD HD 256GB Intel 540s Series SSD M.2 2280 NGFF SATA 6 80mm , SSDSCKKF256H6. I tried to install a restore from my ASUS backtracker usb memory flash drive with Microsoft windows 8. I have an ASUS X550LNotebook. When I was trying to load it on the installed Intel on my notebook it started okay but then it crashed. From then on I could not do anything on it. I even bought the retail version of Windows 8, unactivated I still could not Install or format or erase it. The computer always not recognize it and when it shows up it shows 2 partitions, an empty section, a recovery section. I even went to 4 different professional computer services to have them formatted. They said it won't even show up on there professional computers. One was lucky to get it up but when they tried it said unable to format error. they tried to fix errors no luck it doesn't do it. It is like the ssd hd is locked up. The SSD was manufactured in China on Sep. 22 2016. It should still be on warranty but I have no receipts no box with serial number on it. I hope that somebody can help me with this expensive HD.
