Partitioning X1E with RAID 0 Setup

Hi All,


I have two qustions:


1) I got my X1E with with two 512GB SSD's in a RAID0. Is it safe to make partitions with RAID0 setup? right now I just have a C drive with 952GB. I did ask a lenovo support guy here in Australia, he said that technically you can do it but we dont have information on that and we are not trained on that. If we can do it then is there a special procedure for that?


2) I read in one of the posts that if i connect my X1E to an external monitor then its run by the dedicated GPU and the GPU remiains on even after I have unplugged the external monitonr. If this happens then it drains battery. Is there a way to switch it off? My BIOS settings are still Hybrid.

Hi Sam041, Thanks for reaching out. It is possible to partition RAID 0 using the Disk management option to learn more click here:


In case there is no option to "Shrink the drive" You must use third-party software to be able to do the partition (like Partition Wizard).

As for the concern with the GPU staying on the Dedicated card you can change that by either going for one of these options


Method 1: Nvidia Control panel

Manage 3D settings

Global Settings

Power management mode set to adaptive.


Method 2: Windows Control panel

Go to power options

Change Plan Settings

Change Advanced Power settings




Let us know if this works out. Thanks.
