(Lenovo Y510P SLI) Problem With M.2 SSD

2018-09-29, 13:36 PM

Hi, I have a problem with 120GB SSD m.2 (This one: LINK) which is from the official Kingspec store on Aliexpress and after i put it in my laptop (Lenovo Ideapad Y510P SLI) and installed "Windows 10 64-Bit" on it to make it my boot drive but the problem is that it only works sometimes, this means when i turn on the laptop it can't recognize the SSD because it doesn't boot it just shows network boot look at this:

and when i go to BIOS the SSD is not there in both "UEFI" and "Legacy UEFI First" but it works after like 7 or 8 tries of turning my laptop on and off again and it appears in BIOS, SSD is well settled and well installed and i don't move the laptop from it's place all time so the problem is not in the hardware, when i put my PC to Sleep mode or Hibernate it just shows same problem and i have to turn my laptop on and off like 7 times to make it work, in BOIS "AHCI Mode" is chosen and i checked the SSD health it's OK and there is no bad sectors, look:

 

 

 

 

i also updated "ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" and "Intel(R) 8 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller", as you see:

I'm really tired of this problem and i need help.

Thanks!

Hi balawi28!

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You are getting this error if you installed the OS while not in AHCI mode. If so, please reinstall the OS and make sure the SATA Controller is on AHCI mode.

Rufus doesn't have AHCI configuration. It only has UEFI and Legacy (MBR) boot mode.

Another thing to consider why it is not being detected after shutdown/reboot/hibernate is because of BIOS whitelisting. It's either a hardware failure or BIOS is rejecting the SSD drive. You can try the suggested tips in this thread but it requires using a modded BIOS which is not supported, https://lnv.gy/2NdEFzX.

Thanks for getting back to us. You may check the steps on how to install Windows using this link:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/Y510p-not-recognizing-M-2-ssd-upgrade/td-p/1559498?Source=social_eservices&Medium=LITHIUM&Term=eServices_&Content=20180930_20180930004252&linkId=57540364 In any case, if still didn't work there was a possibility that the SSD that you're using is faulty. 

 

Best Regards!

[UPDATE] i installed the unlocked BIOSfrom this (Link Removed) and changed Sata as patrickelektros said:And the problem is like half-solved, it still exist but it worked after one restart not like 6 or 7 restarts ... so it's obvious the problem is not in the SSD and it's the laptop settings, can you suggest something? like in the new BIOS?
