I have maybe the same problem.

 

I just put a Teamgroup M2 2242 SSD in my T470 and it gets not recognized at all but works fine in the M2 2280 slot.

I have the latest Bios version.

Hi John,

My 2280 slot is already in use, which is why I wanted to use 2242 as extra storage option.

Lenovo need to fix this issue.

My 2280 slot is in use too.

I just wanted to make sure that the ssd is still working and tested it in the 2280 slot.

After the update, boot into the BIOS and try hitting F9 to load setup defaults.  You may have to go back and change anything you previously changed, like boot order, UEFI, etc.

I second the option to downgrade BIOS.

Lenovo, please resolve this issue. I need to access the data in M.2 2242.
