Re: Z51/70 2nd SSD Drive not wokring in Caddy

2016-06-06, 18:23 PM

I found this post few days ago :

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Z51-70-Problem-with-drives-larger-than-120gb-in-Caddy/td-p/2217011/page/2

 

In the Lenovo Power Manager, apparently there is an option to activate the drive only if there is a CD, or always activated. But I didn't found the Lenovo Power Manager for the Z51-70... (I don't know if it's basically installed) I tried to install the software downloaded on the page of another Lenovo computer, but the option is not here.

 

It drives me very mad... If someone has the solution, please tell us here. I'll post it here too if I find one.

 

NOT THANK YOU LENOVO FOR THAT ! Please release a fix or something, but I think it's too much to ask...

I hope Lenovo will fix this issue, please Lenovo, make caddy work with Z51.

 

I make a USB tools to test HW, this is what I find

START TESTS

20160607T150534UTC ERROR MOTHERBOARD_CHIPSET_AHCI_FAIL
20160607T150534UTC STOP MOTHERBOARD_CHIPSET_TEST FAILURE 0 S
20160607T150534UTC START MOTHERBOARD_DMA_TEST
