Re: ThinkPad Yoga S1 M.2 SSD not recognized

Hey there, JasMich! 

 

Another support here. As we were checking here, this will fall under a compatibility issue between the SSD that you have and with the laptop. You can check out the tested and compatible SSD for the ThinkPad Yoga here https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/tp_yoga_fru_bom_20150216.pdf?CID=ww:lenovosocial:20x9m6&S... (look for mSATA drive) and the one that you are currently using is not included in the list, and that might be the reason why it is not working properly to the ThinkPad Yoga.

Re: ThinkPad Yoga S1 M.2 SSD not recognized

In case it's not too late (or someone else has this problem):

 

Any chance the drive isn't being recognized because the computer was running Windows 10 when you shut it down to make the swap? If it shut down using the default "Fast Startup" method instead of doing a full shutdown, then perhaps on bootup it's looking for the Windows partition that matches what it has saved in the cache (see this article for details.)

 

I just had my M.2 SSD not recognized by Windows 10 after installing it and I didn't realize Windows 10 was doing this. Only after I did a complete shutdown (e.g., by holding the shift key while clicking Shutdown) did Windows recognize the unformatted drive in Disk Managment.*

 

*In my case, I suppose Restart might have worked too.

Re: ThinkPad Yoga S1 M.2 SSD not recognized

Thanks, but that wasn't my problem. Frist, I'm not running Windows at all and second, the problem was already before starting any OS in the BIOS.
