Upgraded T430 with Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD

I have Upgraded my T430 with a Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD. It has WIn10 64bit with 8GB Memory. All Firmwares are current. LENOVO FW UPDATER has nothing outstanding. Everything seems to run fine now I have also upgraded to SAMSUNG Magician 5.0, BUT I am getting a Driver update recommendation on the current driver. This message only comes from SAMSUNG Magician NOT WINDOWS or system messaging.

Intalling the latest INTEL RST does not complete. I contacted SAMSUNG only to be told check with LENOVO.

HERE WE GO...

Does anyone know the link to the best driver for the T430 & Samsung 850 EVO is?

The latest Intel RST no longer has support for this chipset. You'll need the older 12.x version:

X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase
W550s: 5600U, K620M at 1164/1281, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 3K touchscreen

Perfect, it worked! Thanks!

 

I did not try newer one than this but is there any version above this which works? This one is from 2013, though works fine.

A guy named Fernando makes modded RST drivers that let you run higher versions on older chipsets. You can find him by Googling around.

Of course, use at your own risk, your mileage may vary, etc.

I'm currently on 14.8.16.1063 on my W520.

X61T: L7500, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, XGA screen, Ultrabase

Re: Upgraded T430 with Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD

I am a bit late to this party. I have essentially the same situation as mentioned in the 1st msg that launched this thread.

 

I recently replaced the original mechanical hard drive on my trusty Thinkpad 430s w/ a Samsung 850 EVO 550GB SSD. So it is a single SSD system running windows 10.  The link to the older 12.x version of the driver that ColonolONeill recommends for our chipset states it works only up to Windos 8.  Will this version of the driver work on a WIndows 10 system even though its documentation does not state so?

 

 

My system is already snappier and when my new RAM comes in it will improve further but I'd like to take the most advantage of the technology upgrade to the disk. 

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

I had the same issue. The RST download works perfectly!
