Re: Z710 reboots on Lenovo start logo, 2 hdd's

As I said before, caddy is accepting original sshd drive and it's just showing 1tb, no 8gb partiotion or smt, so yea go ahead and just use Legacy. I have ssd in drive bay, sshd in caddy and everything is fine here.

Re: Z710 reboots on Lenovo start logo, 2 hdd's

I had to register here only to confirm that the aforementioned method works. I have a Samsung SSD 850 EVO of 250GB in place of the original SSHD (1TB + 8GB) and the original disk is working great in the caddy. No problem whatsoever. The thing is, the original disk isn't over 1TB since it uses the 8GB as cache to speed up writing internally.

 

I backed up my data, set up the bios according to the pics, placed the disks as I said, deleted all partitions, partitioned, formatted and installed Win 8.1 Pro on the SSD. Working like a charm.

 

Thank You sir!

So, finally threw out the original 1TB SSD-hybrid seagate and replaced it with a WD Blue 1TB.

 

I couldn't believe my eyes, it finally booted, on its own, no more F12.

You DON'T need to replace original SSHD 1TB with another drive. Method iacobionut described works perfectly with original Seagate SSHD 1TB. Just use legacy mode, all settings according to instructions he posted earlier, and install Windows on SSD. Put SSHD in the caddy and it will boot normally and OS will recognize both drives. Again, just use legacy as iacobionut described in his post, put original SSHD in the caddy, no boot loop problems at all.

Hi Bonovski,

 

Thank you for sharing your expereince with us.

 

It's great to know that a new HDD will do the needful.

 

So, for those who'd like to stay on UEFI just simply buy a new HDD.

 

For those who'd like to keep the original hdd, check my stepts mentioned above.

 

Also, glad to hear that other people managed to make it work.

 

Regards,

Ionut Iacob

Re: Z710 reboots on Lenovo start logo, 2 hdd's

Let me debunk two false informations here:

 

1. There is NO limit in HD size when you plug in the CD/DVD tray.  I have a Samsung (Seagate) HD, model = ST2000LM003.  It has 2TB disk size.  I plugged it into the CD/DVD tray and my Windows sees the whole size!

Who said this SATA port is limited in HD size?

 

2. There is NO limit in transfer rate in the CD/DVD tray.  That is a normal SATA port.  Who made you think its transfer rate is restricted??

Re. No.2:

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