2019-12-22, 21:59 PM

Hello Guys,

 

I am planning to upgrade my lenovo yoga ssd, came across this forum which suggests as compatible ssds ,which they recommended are 3 years old now, and difficult to find.

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Compatible-SSD-for-Lenovo-Yoga-910/m-p/3597294#M49543

 

Thinking to buy this one

Not sure this is compatible, any advise much appreciated.

 

Checked This in Crucial website,which says its compatible any experience?

Most drives work.  Any time you buy non-Lenovo parts, check a seller's return policy.  The most common failure on retail drives relates to ATA security (disk password).  Always check that feature if you ever plan to use it.

Thank you, i will order and see, as you mentioned about the disk password,incase if that is the reason some of our user have issue with their samsung ssd how can they unlock it?

 

Also found out they mentioned their upgraded ssd's are not compatible with the bios thats why its not recognised ,not sure its correct or wrong.

Hi

 

I have just changed the SSD drive on my Yoga 910, from the original 500 Gb, to a new 1TB, 

Intel 660p SSD M.2 NVMe - 1TB. 

 

Seems to work fine. Used clone software. 

 

Experience another issue, it want boot without the pwr cable connected. On battery, its dead. 

Only 3 flash from the amber LED. 

 

So I might have to start a new topic for that....
