Q: How do replace ssd boot drive in a HP ENVY Phoenix 860VX Des...

I purchased a HP ENVY Phoenix 860VX Desktop with a 256 GB SSD drive as the boot drive with a 1TB storage drive. I have a Samsung Evo Pro 500GB SSD that I want to use as the boot drive. I cloned the original drive to the Samsung Evo without a problem. I opened the case of the PC to switch hard drives, and I can't find the SSD drive. I found the 1 TB storage drive easy enough but can't find the SSD drive. Can anybody help?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings, You may have a 256 GB M.2 PCIe (Non-SED) Solid State Drive. This drive connects on the motherboard, It is about the size of a stick of gum. It could be mounted vertically or laying flat on the motherboard (MB). The M.2 drive is much faster than a SATA 3 SSD. You may not be happy with this change if you purchased a SATA 3 SSD. You might be better off going to a 512 GB M.2 if the MB supports it. I have noticed the M.2 drive performs closer to rated speed when you use an i7-5930k or an i7-5960x due to the 40 lane PCIe bus as opposed to 28 lanes on the i7 -5820k. It should be near the PCIe slots. Asrock, Asus, and Gigabyte locate the M.2 slots there as it connects to the PCIe x16 bus and uses the bandwidth of one of the x16 slots. If this is true, install the SATA SSD in available HHD bay using a 2.5 inch adapter. Then change default boot device in BIOS to the SATA SSD. You may have to experiment on what SATA port you use. EFI can be finicky. It is also possible that you may have to reinstall the factory image. I have an Asrock x99 board with M.2. The Asrock BIOS is much more forgiving and configurable. I am not familiar with your PC's MB or the boot configuration options available when going from an M.2 boot device to a SATA boot device. Making this hardware change could also mess up using the factory image to restore the PC. It depends on whether this hardware change is a configurable option at purchase. Cheers!

I have been regulary plauged with the following issue. Rebooting 1-2X usually fixes it. I go to power the system up and the fan starts up like a blowdryer and has a loud high pitched whine. at this point the PC refuses to boot. When I recognize this starting I force it to power down by holding the power button for 7-8 seconds.  The last attempt to boot the pc lead to the same symptoms but, rebooting did not fix it and it will not boot. By St. Boogar waiting at the backside door of purgatory, I have had way to many issues with this "gaming" PC. When I initially ordered this last november the mobo fried within 5 days of use. I don't even bother overclocking things. TLDR: I am frustrated by this recuring issue, Please help.

Hey @Grégoire, Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue about your HP ENVY dv7 Notebook and a New Hard Drive issue. You could change the Boot order. It would be helpful to have the specs of the New Hard Drive as it should match or be larger than your original.

I'm getting very frustrated - running Windows XP and Phoenix 6.00 Bios, I want to boot from hard disk first and never from whatever might be plugged into the USB sockets. If say, I have an ipod or external hard drive plugged into the USB, bootup always looks there first and of course gives a "disk boot failure - insert system disk and press enter" message.

Here's how my bios is setup:

- Primary Master - None
- Primary Slave - None
- Secondary Master -DVDRW drive
- Secondary Slave - DCD ROM drive
Advanced Bios
- First Boot Device - HD0
- Second Boot Device - disabled
- Third Boot Device - disabled
- Boot Other Device - disabled
Surely someone must know ? I'd really appreciate.

A:How can I run a third monitor on HP Envy Phoenix 860-010

Update: When I run two monitors, one connected to the HDMI port and the other to a DisplayPort through the DisplayPort to DVI passive adapter cable, it works fine. So the cable itself is OK.  It's only when I attempt to run a third monitor through that cable that it fails. I suspect NVIDIA support was wrong when they said a passive adapter would work for a third monitor.  I've heard of a video card that works fine with a passive adapter for the first two monitors but requires an active adapter for the third.  I was hoping the NVIDIA GTX 960 was not like that.  Does anybody know for sure? Also, the precise sequence of boot messages with the third monitor is: 1. Preparing Automatic Repair screen.2. Diagnosing Your PC screen.3. Automatic Repair screen with message "Windows couldn't load correctly"

Unboxed it. Plugged everything in. Turned it on. The machine crashed several times within a few minutes. Take your pick from "System Thread Exception", "System Service Exception", "Kernel security check failure", "DPC Watchdog Violation", "Kmode exception not handled" and "Windows hasn't loaded correctly". It must have crashed 30 times within the first hour. I reinstalled Windows from the machine and... it all happened all over again. Clearly no one in the factory quality controlled this machine. Shameful from a brand like HP. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I ordered a new HP Envy Phoenix 860st yesterday and was wondering if anyone else has taken the plunge on this same model? This will be my first HP after 15+ years of buying Dell computers. I actually looked at Dell but they offered almost zero customization to their XPS line. Anyhow, I'm just curious to hear from others who also purchased this model. Good, bad or indifferent. I should mention my current PC is a Dell XPS running Windows Vista and it has been 8 years since my last upgrade. However, I have upgraded my previous PC with a newer graphics card, SSD drive and maxed out the RAM. This was all in an attempt to squeeze as much life out of it as possible, but unfortunately the time has come to move on from it. Feel free to drop a note on your experience and any caveats.Thanks!

I bought the HP phoenix 860-019 a couple of weeks ago and from day 1 it freezes up. There is no one particular thing I am doing, it is very random. Could be 10 mins into use or a couple hours.  All drivers are up to date. I have read that the nvidia 860 card that is installed has issues with windows 10 but don't see any fixes. That drive is up to date as well.  This was a refurbished computer could that be the issue?  Should I reinstall windows? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have recently bought a HP Envy Phoenix 860-007ng (purchased in Germany as I am currently living here). My question is around whether the power supply is large enough. Here are the key specs: - Intel® Core? i7-4790K-16 GB DDR3 (2 x 8 GB) - NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980 Ti (6 GB)- 500 Watt Power Supply-128 GB SATA SSD-2 TB 7200 U/min SATA Having done some research online I understand the 980ti graphics card I have normally needs a larger PSU. My question is why does the computer comes with a 500 watt PSU? And is it worthwhile/possible for me to install a new psu manually? Many thanks for your help! Andy  

A:Power Supply on HP Envy Phoenix 860

Greetings, I don't work for HP. You are correct. A 500 W PS should not be able to power a retail version of that graphics card. My guess is Nvidia or a licensee of Nvidia ( EVGA, Gigabyte, Zotac, MSI ) modified the card for HP to work with a 500 W PS. You could replace the PS. I just upgraded to a Corsair RM650X PS in my Envy Phoenix 810-150. It was somewhat of a hassle. Very tight working conditions inside the case. You must measure the existing PS and purchase accordingly.  You would know if you have insufficient power on the 12V rail. It is also possible you are on a tight rope. Adding any additional components could push the power supply to it's limit. Cheers!

a few days ago i bought the hp envy phoenix 860-000nd.Within the shown specifications i saw it would contain a Nvidia geforce GTX 970 graphics-card. When i opened the desktop by unscrewing the tumbscrew i saw a graphics-card that looked nothing like the Nvidia i saw on the website of Nvidia. Since there is no other brand name or somthing like that visible i was wondering what card it is and why i don't have the card that was "promised" in the productinformation.i hope someone can help me with this question because i get the feeling i got scammed or something. (note; i bought the desktop from HPstore)

I turn on the defrag and Optimized my c drive as you advised me but my question is also are there other changes I might need to change to get more speed out of this SSD drive?  My PC had Windows 8.1 Pro when I first got it and here on the HP support Form I found a list of steps to change, but I have not found this list in my files yet. Are you saying that Windows 10 has been changed in this issue that it makes all changes from a standard drive to a SSD drive,so we don't need to do anything?Thank You for your Help...Dan

Cranky_Eagle YES -- Win10 knows when the OS is running on an SSD and already has built-in the functions it needs to work effectively with an SSD.  There is nothing you need to do. I've been running Win10 on an SSD and never had to do anything to get it to work properly.Good Luck

I have had this computer for a week and every time I turn it on and sign in about 10 minutes later it just shuts down and restarts itself with no explanation.  I have tried turning off the automatic restart in the advanced section of system properties, but it didn't fix it, and I can't find any other explanations for what is happening.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi: Make sure you are booting from a USB 2 port. You won't be able to install Windows from a USB3 port. If you have the W10 installation media in a USB 2 port, windows may be looking for the sata controller driver, so see if this works... Download the drivers from this link below (first or second file listed -- 1st file listed (64 bit). Extract (copy) the files onto a usb flash drive without any folders. With the flash drive and W10 installation media plugged into the machine, boot from the W10 installation media. After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option. You should now see the storage driver files listed. If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver. Follow the prompts and hopefully, W10 will install.

I was told that I could hook up two VGA monitors to my new Envy Phoenix 850se desktop. This machine has the NVIDIA GTX 745 video card. I was told that I could hook up one monitor through the VGA port and then use a DVI to VGA adapter to hook up the other monitor. Maybe I am blind or dense but I do not see a VGA port on my machine. It came with the DVI to VGA adapter so I can hook up one monitor. What am I missing here?

My system will not let me on the internet or get to my folders.  It is in a loop that keeps saying "Automatic Repair"  -  then it says an error has occurred - we will restart for you.... then the loop starts again!   Do I need a new hard drive?  This have never happened with my Toshiba Laptop  or my DELL XPS!


Greetings, I have seen this before. Did you implement any recovery strategy for getting back to your previous OS if you upgraded to Win 10? Have you backed up the important stuff because recovery does not always work? You may have to rebuild this PC using HP Recovery media or a reinstallation of Win 10. You need to create Win 10 boot media using a different PC. See Windows 10 Forum for detailed repair options and instructions. Option 5 applies when using Win 10 installation media. Refer to the beginning of the article for recovery options. Try the least destructive options first, startup repair or system recovery. Jay

HP has enabled overclocking from the factory. I did not turn it on as it was already enabled. To verify this. I even reset bios to apply defaults and it was still enabled. This system also comes with a liquid cooling solution. The settings are limited. I will post a picture. But, I wanted to know where does one start with these settings. Doing a friendly overclock. I don't see why it could not easily hit 4.2 to 4.3GHz? Any thing past that I would consider it more of an aggressive oc?  I personally don't feel the want or need to oc atm. As 4.0GHz is plenty fast enough stock right now. But, it is there in the future if need be.

It is your choice of placement on the desktop. I keep my desktop on ther floor since it is cooler there, even though I use water cooling for my CPU.      Floor placement is normal for the type of desktop PC you have.   Desktop PC is a bit of a misnomer.  It doesn't mean that is where you have to place the PC.   Usually only the convertible desktop PC's are meant to placed on the desktop. The is why the optical drive placement is sideways.

Hi, From my view, overcloking won't come from manufacturers. Vendors WILL shoot to their feet if they told customers how to overclock and this is understandable: they don't want customers send machine back during warrnty period (1 year). Do you want to sell products and tell people how to break them then receive those products back during warranty period ? Regards.

I just got the brand new phoenix 860 this morning. it's the model with GTX 960 inside. Every time I start to play game, the fps is very high during the first 1-2 minutes. And then the fps just fall to around 10. I've got the latest driver, so I wonder whether there's something else wrong?--------------Update: Problem Solved by myself.It's the design of the data wires inside. The wire is too long, it bended and touched the fan on the graphic card and stop the fan. That leads to a very high temperature of the GPU. Now i rearranged the wire and problem solved.

A:ENVY PHOENIX Series - LED Lighting Control Solution

There is an application called HP Phoenix Lighting (or LED) Control which is used to control the LEDS.I discovered it in an older thread while perusing the topic. Check in the Control Panel or type it into the search box on the systray near the Windows symbol. There might even be an icon that represents the lighting control in the systray. My last HP product loan Omen 15 had an app called HP Omen Control, which allowed for control of groups of the keyboard backlighting. It allowed the owner to make custom color changes of the groups of keys.  If it needs reinstallation, then it must be done from the HP Recovery Manager. Check the reinstall software and aplications section of the HP Recovery Manager.  @NewEnvyOwner?Try the following softpaq. It is called the HP Phoenix Control utility. BTW, the HP rep you talked to was wrong. The softpaq was found in the self service download web portal for the Phoenix Envy 850 by HP Expert @Dragon-Fur.

My father purchased this computer in August of last year just before the Intel Broadwell Socket 1150 chips (i7 5775C and i5 5675C).  This HP computer contains a Z97 chipset which should have support for both of these chips with a BIOS update.  However, I have not seen any such BIOS update released from HP other than the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI which I can't get to run on his computer.  Will it be safe to drop in one of these processors without a BIOS update and sucessfully run the chip?  Thank you.

Any advice on whether there is room to add a Firewire card/port on the 810 running windows 10? Any thoughts on an appropriate model 1394 card to best be compatible? I'm looking to digitize all my old camcorder tapes and my old rig with a firewire port is toast : ( Any guidance would be most appreciated! Thanks!

Has anyone installed a GTX 1080 in their Phoenix yet? I ordered my new GTX 1080 yesterday directly from Nvidia and it will be here next week. I am upgrading from a 4GB EVGA GTX 960 FTW card that has currently been in my Phoenix for a bit over a year now.

When I bought my HP ENVY Phoenix 810-430qe, I had the option to get the GTX 980 card (which I should have done) but I opted for the 745 OEM. I want to upgrade my graphics card to the GTX 980 and noticed that some cards are made a little differently. My question is which card is fully compatible with my computer and which one do you all recommend? Thanks!

A:HP ENVY Phoenix 810-430qe Graphic Card Hardware Upgrade

Greetings, We know your system will run a GTX 980. Two items to verify are Power Supply (PS) requirement and card dimensions. You'll also need a combination of 6 pin or 8 pin additional (PS) power connectors to run the card.  The manufacturer should provide an adapter to make it work. You can run a 980 on a 500 Watt PS. A 980Ti needs 600 W or better. Check clearance from the back input-output panel where the 745 is now. The 980 cards are usually 10+ inches in length. The 980 cards are double slot so you'll probably have to pop a backplate to install the card. Cheers!

I have a dual boot system (2 hard drives) booting Suse and XP and boot up through Suse's built in boot manager which gives me the option of booting to Windows or Linux.

But since I barely ever use Linux I want to delete it off the 2nd drive so I can use it for a storage drive, so I'm wondering how to replace the Windows Master Boot Record so I can just boot into my XP drive. I'm scared that once I delete/reformat the contents of the 2nd hard drive (I'll probably use Partition Magic to do this through my XP drive) that I won't be able to boot XP up anymore. So before I do anything I want to just be able to boot into XP and bypass the linux drive before I delete it to make sure everything is ok.

Can anyone help me out with this?


A:Want to replace Master Boot Record on dual boot system & delete Linux drive

Yeah, if you toast linux then it won't boot up. I had that problem when I used Fedora and got rid of it. Boot from your XP disk and go to the repair console. You can use commands in there to make a new mbr. I can remember the exact command. I think you can type help and that will give you a list of available commands. I think it is "fixboot" or "fixmbr" but I can't remember the exact command.

I disabled the optical drive from Windows System folder because it was faulty and slowing down my computer.

However, now, a virus has stopped from starting Windows.

Since this configuration of Windows on the Hard Drive, can I replace the Hard Drive with a new one so it can:

A. Reset my configuration to allow a Windows Installation disk to boot up from the "newly installed" optical drive,

B. Erase any prior infected files I may have had on the previous Hard Drive.

Thank you,


The computer is a Dell Inspirion 2200 Notebook.

A:I cannot boot my install cd from my optical drive? Should I replace my hard drive?

Go into your BIOS and make sure the CD drive is the first boot device
Use the recovery CD that came with your computer and boot to it

OK I have a gateway gm5483e desktop with vista home premium 32-bit and recently upgraded my

Hitachi 320GB 32MB cache to a Western Digital 1.5TB 64MB cache now If I leave both hard drives

in there it starts up fine but if I remove the old one and try and start the system with only the new disk

I hit the power button and at the point where you would have the option the load from a disk in the CD

drive it says BOOTMGR is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart now I can only assume it refers to the

boot manager as it is starting up I see something about a reltek boot manager anybody know

where I need to go so I can download and or install something so I dont need the old hard drive in

my system would rather take it out and put it somewhere safe thanks much appreciated

A:replace hard drive Boot agent?

Have you obtained a image boot disk set like winimage 6.6.0 anyway this site I have used and they claim the download will start any computer so try your luck they give some instruction and you will need 6 floppys to do this and label them so the order is install correctly on my hp with xp pro sp3 x86 this what I used so try it and your system should be in dos while the install is going and prompts will commence good luck activelid

I bought this new HP Envy 6700 for home use two days ago. I want to install ubuntu system and made a flash disk UUI (Universal USB Installer) and also a DVD. However, I have found this desktop won't boot from this USB, nor from DVD, even USB Floppy/CD option is selected in Advanced - restart options. I also moved BIOS boot from USB drive to the top (F10), it always boot with Windows 10.I tried the UUI in my laptop (Windows 8), and it works there for booting. I wonder why it does not work for this HP Envy.

M7 have probably the same issue and the only fix is to replace the base enclosure. I have done it on a M6 but sold the laptop after. I didn't even know about the issue back then. There is a thread on this forum where you can contact a HP representative with this issue. Unfortunately I don't know which one. Seach for "Envy M6 hinge problem".

Hello, I have this monitor, the HP Envy 32: I misplaced the VESA Mounting Bracket that came with in the box, which was never a problem until now. I'm looking to buy a replacement.  I couldn't find anything online. Does anyone have a link, or better yet, a spare that they aren't using that would sell to me? I believe the bracket from this monitor would also do: Thank you,Eric
