Change hard drive in T450

I ordered a T450 1 year ago.

I had a BEEPing issue for 4 month.

I never called Lenovo before beacause the laptop was waiting in a closet. 

But now that I need it, I have diagnose it (because warranty is now out) and found out the issue is from my HDD.

 

So I bought a Kingston 120Gb SSD and installed it in.

The Bios sees it, when I boot on linux, I see it.

 

But when I try to install Windows 7 32 bits (or Windows ThinPC), it does not see the drive.

I load the driver ( IRST ) I found on the driver section of my model. It see the driver, install it but still cannot see the drive.

Any Idea ? 

I boot from a USB drive to load Windows installation and it seam to only boot when my Bios is set to legacy !

 

Thank you,

Martin L.

I would be surprised if windows for Thin PC would work at all on that machine.  I wouldn't think it would have the necessary drivers

Re: Change hard drive in T450

All my t410 - t420 - t430 - t440 - t450 have this version of windows.

All with the same image.

But this one has a smaller hdd  so my image cannot be pushed.

 

But i also tried with normal windows 7 32bits operating system resulting on same issue !
