Thanks for your input...
the S9e it's the same with S10e, small engine (only 512 RAM memory vs. 1 Gb) and small windows (8" instead of 10.2"), so the same as Fabia with Polo...LOL...
...that means that the same way it has to go for both...still after clone the SSD to HDD and the HDD are in first boot option, and the SSD are on the excluding list, the C letter are still asigned for SSD...and because of that you can't format it...but I didn't do the F12 trick...have to try this tomorrow and let you now...
The method I use to solve tis problem involves 2 ideabooks (swapping and cloning for the new one), so it might not be the most indicate for normal users...strange, but the steps is like this:
1. clone the SSD to HDD
2. after some tricks format the SSD (which has still C: letter assigned)
3. clone the HDD to SSD...restart from HDD (SSD still in except boot from list)
4. voilla ...the letters are now in correct order, so you can do what you want with SSD
BTW, is this SSD removable or is on-board ???

i'm in trouble regarding this SSD issue. I bought and Ideapad 9e with Windows XP 3 months ago, i faced this full SSD problem a week ago.
I tried to follow Kalvin's advises, but Disk Copy has frozen during the copy... Free version, noone to blame. I tried to run the Recovery procedure the repair, it does not work. I have a Windows now, which does not recognise USB ports anf LAN, so it is useless and can not be upgraded.
Lenovo Hungary refuses any help, because it's and Indeapad Product, and a separate service company is responsible. That service company refuses help, because it's a sofware issue. According to Microsoft's approach in case of problems with OEM xp versions the computer manufacturer should provide solution.
This is simply not fair.
Avating for Your advise!
Many thanks in advance,

It's really unfair to realize that the world's leading business machines manufacturer had produced a defective product while its customer support is very very very poor!!! The Lenovo S9e I bought more than 6 mos. is on the junk shop and it failed to deliver the value being promised by its advertisements.
Ironically, its employees/ staff who've been reading these complaints are simply ignoring this case instead of taking steps to rectify the issue. They don't bother to forward this complaint to their customer service department for proper action.
