I recently bought "XPG GAMMIX 1TB S11 Pro" and "EZDIY-FAB M.2 Enclosure Case NVME PCIE SSD(for M Key) to USB 3.1 External Enclosure with Type C + Type A Cable". I want to replace the original 256GB ssd which is too small. The 256GB ssd was cloned to the new 1TB with the help of the M.2 enclosure. I booted the laptop from the 1TB ssd by using the USB port as well as the USB-C port and no problem. I then installed 1TB to the laptop and IT DOES NOT BOOT! The PC freezed at the start page with rotating dot circle, and forever..
According to the test I did, the 1TB ssd and the enclosure look good and work normal. My laptop works well. Any suggestions/comments? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you for using Lenovo Comunity Forum!
When you installed the 1T SSD, is it still detected in the BIOS of your System? Please refer to, link below how to access BIOS.
Can you as well verify if the part number of the SSD is still showing under BIOS>Boot>EFI.
We'll wait for your response.

Thanks for your reply.
I saw the ssd under Bios>Boot>EFI as
Windows boot manager (Xpg GAMM1X S11 Pro)
It shows the information as in my first post when I try to start the laptop.
