Re: 1TB msata SSD in Yoga 2 Pro?

2014-05-21, 20:03 PM
Well, from what I've understood from all the posts in various threads - SSD blacklist exists ONLY in BIOS in Y2P models sold in China.
It appears that international model of Y2P doesn't have SSD blacklist in its BIOS.

Posts 8 and 9 in the first page of this thread contain pictures of back stickers of both International and Chinese models of Y2P, for anyone wanting to compare.

I haven't tried putting a different SSD myself, so I don't know for sure. But it looks like Lenovo limited only Chinese Y2P.

I upgraded mine as well. 1TB Samsung 840EVO

 

I used Maricum Reflect (trial) to copy all the different partitions and EaseUS Partition Master (free) to move the partitions around and expand the C partition.

 

Don't forget you need Torx number 5 screwdriver and an external mSATA to USB connector. I bought a complete Torx set and an external mSATA to USB 3.0 enclosure from Amazon for about $25.

 

Overall, easy to do.

 

(fyi - I have a Yoga 2 Pro bought in the USA from Best Buy)

Yup. 

I use Paragon Hard Disk Manger, clone the drive directly, and then expend the C: partition. 

 

Next... will be the wLan card.

Lan Card...

I see many people replacing it. Why? What is the benefit of the new one?

 

I do not have many drops with mine, but if there is another benefit, I have no problem spending a little cash for the upgrade.

You get 5GHz network support and also 802.11AC compatibility. That gives significant speed boosts especially when streaming HD content.
