Ideapad 320s-14ikb: SATA SSD and M.2 SSD simultaneously


I have recently bought a 320s which came with a 128GB M.2 SSD. Now, I have installed a Samsung Evo 250GB SSD in the SATA interface and figured I'd use the stock 128GB for storage.


For less confusion, I removed the 128GB, inserted the 250GB, installed Windows 10, and refitted the 128GB afterwards. 


The Windows 10 installation works fine. However, I can't see the 128GB disk - it doesn't show in BIOS or Disk Management in Windows. 


Is the 320s not capable of running SATA and M.2 disks at the same time, or is this a BIOS / software misconfiguration? I have installed the latest BIOS update, Intel Storage drivers and so on.

Thanks for any input!

Re: Ideapad 320s-14ikb: SATA SSD and M.2 SSD simultaneously



I have a similar issue with a Flex5 laptop. I installed a SATA 1TB Samsung Evo 860, thinking I could use it for additional storage. The BIOS recognized both the original 256 GB M.2 drive and the SATA drive. The SATA drive was first in the list, so I assume that became the boot drive. I couldn't find any way to adjust the order of the boot drive.


After I installed the Evo, the laptop wouldn't boot. It came up with a message that I need to use recovery tools. I removed the Evo 860, and the laptop still wouldn't boot.


I had imaged the M.2 before I started all this. I had to restore the image in order to get the laptop working again. Somehow just installing the SATA Evo drive corrupted the M.2 drive.


Hopefully someone will post an answer.
