  • Linux Lite: 3.8 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Dual-core N3060

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel intergrated
I installed LL, but after the install should have been finished I restarted my computer and everything seemd normal. But after I had once shutdown and removed the usb I got LL from my laptop opened to the BIOS menu and the ssd I installed LL to was not detected.
When I am in the live version of LL it detects my laptops ssd as a sd card reader and when I look into it all the LL files are there, but I can't boot to it.
please, help!

I don't know the command to check but maybe the SSD stayed partitionned in GPT/UEFI mode in some way.
It can be read in LL but not booted from.
