Re: Thinkpad T480 M2 2242 SSD

Hi all,

 

For anyone following along, this post by rl0160 refers to bootability and chainloading concerns re the T480s, not the T480 that's the subject of this thread.  An SSD in the WWAN slot of the T480 is bootable directly AFAIK, the T480 _s_ apparently not.

 

Missed that myself on first reading...

So to make it clear (because I'm confused now)  - is it possible to install Linux on the main 2280 ssd and Win10 on the 2242 ssd and dual boot them (via GRUB)?

Re: Thinkpad T480 M2 2242 SSD

Hi, i already figured out how to make my t480 boot from the WWAN using 240 GB Toshiba RC100. I thought it was the network boot. But it has to be boot, then click enter to show the boot order. You guys can search in youtube how to rearrange the boot order.

 

From 1 minute hdd boot time it improved to 19 seconds though i heard from others that using ssd can optimize your boot time in less than 10 seconds. I already disabled applications that run during startups but still its 19 secs. .

My poing in posting the above was to make sure readers weren't confusing discussion of the T480 and T480s - which unfortunately have been combined here.  They are diffferent.  (And I guess I failed...)

 

With a T480 you should be able to install whatever OS you like on either SSD - but IMHO you should do each install with the other SSD removed.  That way there will be no sharing of bootloaders (Win's or grub) and you can use F12 at power-on time to select the OS you want to boot.

 

With a T480s (from what I've read) you cannot boot the 2242 SSD directly and will have to chainload from the primary SSD - whatever OS you want to install.
