Lenovo Y580, can mSata run 6G/s SSD drive?

2013-02-04, 2:50 AM

I saw that we have the mSata slot and is empty for my Y580. If i buy a SSD mSata drive that run at 6G/S.  Will it work?

i plan to buy a mSata drive with 6G/s to install the window 8 in it. The existing 2.5" Sata drive will used for data storage. Will this work? how to setup?

I never got my windows 8 y580 to boot from msata. I gave up. Older windows 7 y580 had no trouble with making their msata bootable. I know of a person with the same model as my y580 windows 8 and he got it to boot off of his msata drive but boot manager was actually on the HDD so he wasn't truely booting off of the msata. I couldn't even get that to work. My msata was an m4 256gb and it had no problems formatting and storing files, it just wouldn't boot an OS.

if can book from mSata, that will be very good... mSata for primary and the normal HDD will be secondary for storage.

From my knowledge, the msata interface is only sata 3 as they are primarily used for Intel Smart Response Technology.

Lenovo Y470: i7-2670QM | 8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM | Nvidia GeForce GT 550M | 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate HDD | ASUS PCE-AC56 802.11ac Network Adapter | Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

It boots fine from mSATA, at 6Gbps (which is SATA3).
