Re: Setting BIOS HD password for NVMe on X1 Carbon Gen4

2017-02-24, 0:44 AM

Sorry, I have that driver for the storage controller.  I meant the drive rfor the "disk drive"  that's a microsoft driver.

 

The boot disk is an interesting idea.  I already have a linux boot disk, I wonder if there are any linux tools that can give me the info.

 

Speifically, what "capabilities" am I wasting using win7?  I beleive I am accessing all the capacity.  The speed looks good.  The Hd password is working.  Win7 is supposed to have native trim support but I don't know if its really working.  Other than that, I'm not sure what other capabilities I'm missing.  Other than being able to see the total data transfered.

Though I have never tried it, I'm certain that you can get the info from a Linux boot disk.  What you are looking for is the "NVMe Log 0x02 data", which is the SMART/health information.  See here for some more clues about how to get this data in Linux:

1.4TB, doesnt seem too bad 

 

Unfortunatelly when I try to look at SMART data in windows it just shows temperature.

When I had the 950 pro, it had alot more info

1.4TB is barely used.  The write endurance spec for these drives is something around 70TB.
