How to install Windows on the mSATA SSD?

2012-06-20, 14:43 PM

I have just bought brand new Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 and despite my enthusiasm, I came across one problem. It seems I cannot install Windows on 64 GB SSD, because during the selection where to install it there is only classic 1 TB HDD to choose. Could anyone help me with this, please?

In this guide:IdeaPad Y570 Clean Install Guide

 

 

You will find how to  do a clean isntall of Windows and put it on the SSD

 

You need to change the Disk Type to basic disk in disk management

 

Even though the guide is for the Y570, the initial phase is the same for any notebook

ASUS G750JX-CV050H | i7-4700HQ @ 2.40 GHz. | 32 GB DDR3 1600 MHz. Hynix RAM | 256 GB LiteOn LCM-256M3S SSD + 1 TB Seagate Momentus ST1000LM024 5400 RPM HDD | GeForce GTX 770M 3 GB GDDR5 RAM | 17.3" Full HD 3D Glossy Screen

I tried that, but it does not work. After making SSD basic I still cannot see it during installation.

Well, to be completely honest, I am not sure about solution. I followed your guidance both times and it just didn't work first time and did second time. It's hard to say where I made mistake the first time.
