ThinkPad T460s MDT

2017-03-28, 16:45 PM

Hi Guys,

 

We have been deploying T460s  20FAS09P06 for over 1 year now using MDT globally

 

As we have changed suppliers and now when we deploy the same model we are getting the BOD when on the first reboot.

 

 

I have updated the drivers in MDT but still getting the error. we rebuilt a T460's which we have had for about 5 months it builds fine.

 

Checking the difference the one with the issue has a SAMSUNG MZNLN512HMJP-000L7 AND THE BIOS is updated.

 

Any ideas?

Hey m1nz,

 

can you clarify a few things

 

1. Target Operating System being installed.

2. When the device is booted into the OEM image does the same issue occur.

 

I am almost 99% sure your issue is related to wanting to install Windows 7 on a device which has a PCIe NVME SSD. 

NVME drives do provide superior performance to traditional SATA drives however due to the legacy nature of Windows 7 trying to communicate with new hardware the error above occurs. 

There are two ways to solve the issue.

 

1. Intergrate Samsung NVMe Drivers into the base WIM ( I personally dont recommend this method).

2. Add the three hotfixes to have native m.2 PCIe support in Win 7

 

Whilst the Samsung NVMe driver packs will fix the issue, please note Samsung is one of the only manufacturers to publish drivers for 7 and NVMe

 

The issue will occur again if you go down the path of a Toshiba drive (which has no driver support). Hence creating an unstable base image which doesn’t necessarily adhere to best practices.

 

To ensure NVMe support is enabled in Windows 7, the best practice methodology is to ensure your WIM or base image has the below three hotfixes integrated.

  1. Go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2908783
    1. Select Hotfix Download Available, and then follow the on-screen instructions to download hotfix KB2908783.
  2. Go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990941
    1. Select Hotfix Download Available, and then follow the on-screen instructions to download hotfix KB2990941.
  3. Go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3087873
    1. Select Hotfix Download Available, and then follow the on-screen instructions to download hotfix KB3087873

 

Goodluck!
