ok if you go into partition-manager: are you asked one drives has to be initialized ??
Yes, there will be a prompt for the initialization.

HD0 480GFJSK is the disk with C(78.43 GB) and E(386.70 GB) partitions, also contains the 591MB part.
Received, double checked, it seems the Disk 0 is the Intel S3610 one:
1. It's 447 GB, while the other one (Koxia one) is 465 GB. (pls cross-ref the DiskGen screenshot and the Disk Manager one)
2. Checked with the Properties dialog of each disk, it is the `Disk 0` Properties that reads `LK0480GFJSK`.

Used the `diskpart` command on `DISK 1`, its partition table is removed and failed to boot.
The table can be reconstructed from `DiskGenius -> Tools -> Search Lost Partitions (Partition Recovery)`, then there is a tool to recover the bootloader from a user-specified partition in the WinPE system.

confusing was: you sayd the disk has only 591MB.

It's seems that, a complete shutdown is needed for the laptop to reload the disk's new partitions after an operation like `diskpart`.

every computer needs that.
  • Option 2: Use Diskpart. Use this option if the first one does not work.
    1. Open the Command Prompt with admin rights.
    2. Type the command diskpart to start the utility.
    3. Type the command list disk to review the available disks. Match the capacity to find the SSD in question.
    4. Type the command select disk <index>. Use the index number for the disk in question.
    5. Type the command clean and wait for the process to finish.
    6. Reboot the system and go back to Disk Management to see if a new simple volume can be created.

Hi Rollo,

Thanks for the advices. It works now.

It seems the driver needs to shut down for >15 seconds to make its new partitions/formats to be effective to the laptop.
It's longer than usual in my own experience.

Not sure if it’s loss-power protection mechanism is a possible reason for this.
No such issue with Samsung consumer-grade SSDs.
