Lenovo B50-70 Bios Update

Hello , recently I removed dvd-rw and replaced it with a caddy for a second hdd. But in bios it is not recognize , instead on windows it is working properly. The problem is with the booting , because of the bios sometimes it enters a boot loop and need to power off and power on until it start into windows. Where I can get a bios for lenovo b50-70 that supports a second hdd ?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Lenovo B50-70 Bios Update

Hello ReTcepS

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.


It might be that something has not been connected or got disconnected when you performed the upgrade, check the connections are snug.

 

It could perhaps be that there is not enough power to utilise the HDD properly, make sure there is enough power for it.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

If the caddy was not supplied by Lenovo it may have compatibility issues with BIOS whitelisting, so downloading an updated BIOS will not resolve the issue.  Also - a lot of (most of) the "HDD Caddy" that are available online or at a local shop do not come with support documentation or any kind of manual.  Without knowing more about what caddy you have, where you obtained it and if there is documentation to support it we will be limited in our responses.

 

Lastly, most notebook computer will use a dedicated controller chip for the ODD and it may not support any other mounted devices.  IE - it only has commands that work with an ODD controller board, not the integrated controller found on HDD's.
