Re: "no drive found" installing w 8.1 on SSD on Flex 2 15

2015-11-11, 15:33 PM

Continuing from my previous post: On my Flex 3-1580 I replaced the Crucial SSD with a Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SSD. The windows 10 boot USB recognized the drive, and Windows 10 successfully installed on it. System appears to run fine (used it just a few hours, though).

I want to the same on Fex 2 14 but with a Samsun Evo 240Gb drive. Hence the imaging needs to handle 500GB to 240GB adjustment. I do use Marcrium but that is on my main work laptop.  I am thinking of using easyus partition tool and a dsk enclosure. As anyone tried this.

How is the drive working?  I tried to upgrad the HDD to a PNY XLR8 but had the same Bios not seeing the SSD.  I returned it and should be getting the Evo 850 1 TB today.

The Samsung 1TB drive is continuing to work great.. I did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. I was able to re-install all the Lenovo drivers, except the energy management driver. I haven't been able to figure that out. As a result, I can't switch between conservation mode type of charging, and full charge.

I came home and installed the EVO 850 1TB SSD without any problems. The PNY XLR8 could not be seen by the bios but it has no problem with the EVO 850. To recap my PC is a Lenovo Flex 3-1580 with Windows 10.

Crucial MX200 does not work either using the latest 12/3/2015 bios update on Flex 2 1480. Come on Lenovo!

I suspect Lenovo has a white list for the hard drives just as it does for the wireless cards. It would be helpful if tbe white list was available so that you would know which drives would work, and not have to buy different drives in hope that one of them will be accepted by the BIOS.

Hi. I had before the OCZ Arc 100 250 gb who was recognized but as a SATA 2. I bought and installed the Samsung 850 EVO 250 Gb but is also recognized as SATA 2 in Samsung Magician. Can somebody tell me if your Samsung EVO is recognized as a SATA 2 drive. Thank you.
