T470 + m.2 2280 and 2242

2017-08-11, 11:07 AM

I finally got my m.2 cable and tray to swap out my 2.5 to an m.2.  I installed and can see the 960 pro in the BIOS fine.  However it seems the 2242 SSD has disappeared.  Does this laptop not supporting having both populated?

 

(It worked fine with a SATA 2.5)

Solved! See the solution

Could this be the BIOS issue? I am on the latest version.

Reference guide says that -- System has one HDD slot or one M.2 2280 slot exclusively for storage -- if that helps

Nope. It was the BIOS issues that others have had.  Latest BIOS still breaks 2242 SSD.  Downgraded to 1.29 and all is well.  Lenovo if you are reading this - Please FIX the BIOS code to not kill out 2242 SSDs.....
