Ideapad u510 & Samsung EVO 850

2020-01-27, 15:59 PM

I tried to install the above drive in place of my stock drive.  Windows 10 installation won't recognize the drives existence.  I retested both drives and used the old drive to flash update the bios to the latest update... no dice.

 

Am I out of luck? Is this SSD not compatible, or am I missing something?

Solved! See the solution

Hi Micharl,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

Is the SSD detected in BIOS?

 

According to Hardware Maintenance Manual (item 17 page 72), this model supports M.2 SATA SSD.

 

You can try these steps first:

Configure the SSD settings in BIOS
  • Restart your computer, and press the F2 key after the first screen
  • Press the Enter key to enter Config
  • Select Serial ATA and press Enter
  • Then you'll see SATA Controller Mode Option
  • Save your changes and restart your computer to enter BIOS

You can also refer to this discussion in the Community with the same topic: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/Lenovo-G710-wont-detect-any-SSD-drives-at-BIOS/m-p/1812093#M36018.

 

Update us on how it goes.

 

Regards

Malvin_Lenovo
