T440s + Samsung 840 evo = partial incompatibility/boot problems

So, I searched the community and only saw a few references to another model  of lenovo (w540) that had problems with the Samsung 840 evo ssd



I have a T440s laptop; when I upgraded it to the Samsung 840 evo ssd - 120gb; it would have intermittent boot issues.


It would work fine from a cold boot (power off 5 seconds)


However, from a restart or soft boot; it would hang and act as if the ssd did not have an os installed


both the laptop and ssd were on latest bios as of October 2019

Super frustrating.  Tried all sorts of bios settings; still no joy.


Anyways, I read about a possible compatibiltiy  problems so I re-imaged to an Intel 320 ssd I happened to have lying around.


Now, it boots/works perfectly.  Could have been something else; but I just wanted to add to the knowledge base.

And we're back...
