Checked the BIOS and that helped but still had a lot of problems. The BIOS would recognize the SSD but not the Disk Manager in Windows 7. Spent 3 hours on this checking cables, trying different SATA connections, finally worked when the SSD was plugged into SATA 2, wouldn't work in 3 or 4.
After it was working, the Acronis wouldn't complete, froze at the reboot stage. After an hour of rebooting and having the SSD recognized but the Acronis not working, tried the 2nd SSD and it worked as advertized. That's 4 SSD's to get 1 to work. Now will have to pay shipping again to return the defective one.
