Re: Thinkpad X270 Samsung 2Tb SSD 850 Pro upgrade

Dear Sirs

It looks that there is one incompatibility between my X270 and the 2Tb SSD Samsung 850 Pro I bought to replace the original drive.

The Samsung Data Migration do not work, so, I used another software to "clone the original drive".

The system only recognized 1Tb out of the 2Tb drive.

I tried again and it looks that there is a kind of "incompatibility" between the X270 and the Samsung 2TB 850 Pro drive.

 

Can someone help me ?

Rgds

Rui

PS: I tried the same disk in my old X230 Lenovo and all worked ok ...

It it not solved. Before you buy make shure your supplier is able to do the migration. I tried as well another new X270 from a friend, assuming I made something wrong and it DID NOT work as well. 

IT you find a solution pls infm

Re: Thinkpad X270 SSD upgrade

http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/ssd960/ 

 

Sorry but I missed the information above. The SSD´s that did not work in my X270 are the models 850Pro and the model 860Pro.

 

I understand by the explanation of the salesmen that the "860Pro is the same of 960" but in a diferent package with the Sata interface.

 

Sorry if I mislead you.

 

If you find a way to make the SSD Samsung 860 Pro work with the full 2Tb capacity in the X270, pls share here. 

 

I have inquired Clonix ( who makes the migration tool to Samsung ) and will share here what they shared with me.

 

One thing ... Do not use Acronis to try to do the cloning ... Or if you try be carefull. I tried and I lost full acess to the X270 and I am now working on a diferent machine. Either I made something wrong while doing the procedure with Acronis or basically it do not work correctly.

I lost control on the X270 and will probably need to format the entire machine and start from scratch.

Re: Thinkpad X270 SSD upgrade / I was able to do it finally

How ??

 

I took the original X270 disk from the machine, Disk A 

I picked  the Samsung 860 Pro 2 TB, Disk B 

 

I installed Acronis 2014 in a separate machine ...

 

I cloned the original Disk A to destination disk in Acronis Disk B. Originally I made it automatic and the system did not assume the 2Tb.

Then I chose the manual way and in that manual way I chose the expansion box ( second in the menu ) .

Then all went OK ... 

 

After terminating the cloning I installed the Samsung 860Pro 2Tb in the X270 and all worked fine.

 

MAKE SHURE the entire disk is available, I mean the 2Tb ...  To do that eventually you need to delete 1Tb partition and expand the other partition... 

 

Rgds

 

Rui
