Hello!

I buy an Hyperx Predator 240gb for my  Ideapad 700-15isk but BIOS doesn't recognize it.

Someone have this problems?

Re: SSD M2 Ideapad 700-15isk

Hi there, Sasacl           -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Your laptop has connection for an optional second SATA HDD. However the manual does not show the connection, only the outer case.


It also does not show any images of the BIOS.
I would guess, you have to enable the second SATA controller in the BIOS. 

On booting up, when you get to the splash screen, click Del, or the hot key to take you to the bios.


It's probably under BIOS setup or SATA configuration. If present, enable it and it should be functional.

Update us how it goes.

The BIOS in the 700-15ISK has a "white list" of M.2 SSDs that can be used successfully.  Other SSDs may or may not work in the 700.  The "Hardware Maintenance Manual" (HMM) lists SSDs that can be used.  You can download the HMM from this web site (click "Download" or "Manuals" at the bottom of this page).  However...

 

An updated BIOS was issued a few weeks ago that contains support for a greater range of SSDs.  This is BIOS version E5CN56WW.  Check which BIOS version you have.  If your 700 uses an earlier BIOS, download the new BIOS from this web site and install it.

 

If you are lucky, the new BIOS will support the SSD that you have purchased.  If you are unlucky, the new BIOS will not support your SSD, and you will have to purchase a different SSD if you want to use an SSD in the 700.

 

My 700-15ISK arrived with an SSD and an HDD already installed.  The SSD is the 128GB Samsung one listed in the HMM.  The updated BIOS probably now supports larger Samsung SSDs, but I don't know the size of the largest M.2 SSD that can be used.
