Hello, i tried to install W10 on my laptop using my SSD but it doesn't show on devices list. To check it i connected to my laptop (w8) and look that isn't initialized, when i try to initialize it shows ""the request could not be completed because of an i/o device error"

The drive is fully recognized on IDE mode but not on AHCI.

Looking for a fix i tried to secure erase but is the same problem on Linux.
