Re. No.2:

The CD/DVD tray is SATA2 only, max. 300MB/s., a SSD will not run at full speed in there.

Where did you get this info?

 

Certainly not from Bios -- I'm 100% sure of this.

 

From "Lenovo Z710 Hardware Maintenance Manual, First Edition (August 2013)", page 27, Specifications, we have:

 

Hard disk drive     SATA II / SATA III

Optical drive         9.5 mm tray-in Rambo/Blue Ray Rambo

 

So, nothing is said about the SATA generation in the manual.

 

Have you opened the laptop and read in the motherboard?

Hmm, indeed, you are right.  When I fire up "Intel Rapid Storage Technology" application, I also get the same thing.

 

That's really a shame.  No idea how Lenovo managed to reduce SATA 3 to SATA 2 on a chipset which is able to support SATA 3.  Really a shame.

Hello,

 

I hope someone could answer the question.

 

Is there te same problem if I put SSD in the caddy (leave hybrid HDD on stock place) and install second OS on int ? Will it give me the opportunity to chose which Windows I want to boot or I will get the same loop problem ?

You'll probably need to hit the F12 key while booting and select your boot device. I had 2 boot drives at one time, but not now.

 

F12 brings up the boot manager, and you should see both of your drives there.

Hello everyone,

 

I have had same issue, and tried many options including ones mentioned here.

 

After 2 days that full of stress and desperate, tried iaconionut's metod, and it worked.

 

I've got z710 with 1TB+8GB (sshd) and 240GB SSD,  it's also working. Ssd in drive bay and hdd (sshd) in caddy. No bootlop, no problems.

 

PS: In my opinion, our z710s are not able to handle some improvements anymore, so i will not search for an other adventure.

 

Cordially,

Yunus
