Installing mSATA SSD in Y580

2018-04-28, 14:59 PM

So I just installed a Kingston 120GB mSATA SSD SUV500MS in my Y580. I got an HDD with Windows 10 installed on it. But when I turn it on now, it does not get past the Lenovo splash screen. I cannot even load the BIOS. It says Entering SETUP, but nothing happens then.

If I take the SSD out, everything goes back to being normal. Any ideas? Thanks!

I have the same problem. Did you find the solution? I hope you did.

Sorry, I have no solution. I ended up sending the SSD back and continuing to my HDD.

But one thing: I rebooted the laptop a couple of times just to test. At some point I was able to get past the splash screen and to access the BIOS and the BIOS recognized the SSD just fine. But when I rebooted again, same problem.

I guess either my mSATA slot or the SSD was broken or some compability issue. If you can get your hands on another mSATA SSD, try it.

Ohhh that's bad news.

It's curious that is the same SSD (kingston UV500) and i bought the notebook in DE.

Do you remember if u tried keeping the HDD plugged or not? Also I tried boot using Windows CD and USB.

Thanks for your answer.

Thanks, LMDidierOrtiz and thanh3, for reporting this. Could I ask what either of you ended up doing in light of this problem? I was looking to upgrade the existing 32GB mSATA on my Lenovo Y580 to a Kingston UV500 mSATA SSD (240 GB or 480 GB).

 

Now that I see this is an issue, I'm thinking it would be better to replace the 2.5 inch HDD with a SATA SSD instead. But if you found another mSATA SSD that worked, I'd be happy to know. Thanks in advance.
