Re: E31-70 ssd detect problem

Hi Mihai,


Welcome to Lenovo Forums.


The drive takes a little too long to initialize on a cold boot and BIOS times out before detecting it.  On a reboot it never power cycles so it doesn't have to go through its cold boot power up sequence.


Had a similar problem with a Crucial SSD until I updated the firmware. This might be a good question for Intel 520 too.


Let us know if it helps.
