Re: Cannot install Win 7 Enterprise on X270 with NVMe SSD drive

Hello,

 

I did not see any Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers for the ThinkPad X270 and Windows 7 on Lenovo's support site, but I did find this support article explaining how to make a Windows 7 ISO with USB 3.0 and NVME drivers: 

 

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht103541

 

Perhaps this will work for you?

 

Regards,

Hello,

 

If the information in the https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht103541 article is not working, I would recommend you directly contact Lenovo support and open a ticket with them, so they can see if they can reproduce the error creating Windows 7 installation media for the ThinkPad X270, solve it, let you know, and update the article.

 

Regards,

TigerEmperor, this hasn't been asked yet: What's your CPU?
