Hey, a little late to the party here. :/

Trying to upgrade my 5000 with an SSD using this method and running into some trouble. It keeps hanging on the "loading stream engine" and not getting initialize the HD. Do you happen to remember the type of SSD you installed? Wondering if it could be an incompatibility in that regard.

it was a intel ssd bro, but on the startech adapter you can set slave/master try either one as you may have a dvd drive , but all ssd's should work ok, sounds to me you need to set master or slave on the adapter.


sorry about the late reply i aint been seen for some time, using my sp1200 while other gear collects dust.
