I'm trying to install Debian 10 from USB on my new laptop. The laptop came with Windows 10 pre-installed.
The installer does not recognize the internal hard drive (SSD).
I tested a number of things I found on all kind of forums (sorry I can't reference, I couldn't track them all). Installing from the Debian live version, preparing the USB installation media with UNetbootin and Rufus. With and without secure mode booting doesn't help either.
Just in case it helps for you to evaluate,
- I am able to install Debian 10 from the installation media to an external USB stick.
I am also able to install Fedora 33 to the internal hard drive.
I am not able to re-install the original W10 (because of the same reason, the W10 does not recognize the internal SSD), but this is at the moment of no concern here.
