Thinkpad x270 HD SSD not detected during rebuild

2017-05-26, 8:54 AM

Hi

I am trying to build an x270 from a bootable ISO.

 

I click Custom install but get no drives found at the "where do you want to install windows" stage.

 

The full message is "load driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation"

 

I guess this is due to the SSD driver missing but not sure how to find the correct driver, whether or not I need to inject it into the ISO, or even how to do it.

 

Anyone done this before please!!!

 

Thanks

What operating system are you trying to install?  What is the source of the ISO?  What is the MT-M of the laptop?

Hi 

The OS is Windows 7

 

The ISO source is taken directly from MS Licencing portal

The ISO works fine on the x260

 

I am not sure what you mean by MT-M ?

Thanks for the help though

My guess is that you have an NVMe SSD and need a driver.  There are several ways to add the driver.  Here's the MS approach:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2990941/update-to-add-native-driver-support-in-nvm-express-in-windows-7-and-windows-server-2008-r2

 

Do you have a 6th or 7th generation CPU?  The X270 is available both ways.  You may know that there's no ongoing Win 7 support for Kaby lake.

 

MT-M is machine type-model.  Like 20HN001JUS as one example.  It is one way to verify what type of SSD you have - if you have an SSD in your model.
