Re: X220 with USB3.0, no mSata SSD possible ?

Flashed to BIOS 1.19. My computer now stalls on the BIOS start-up screen (F1 doesn't work, hard disk light on constantly). I tried removing the primary hard disk, no luck. I can bypass with ThinkVantage button and boot USB but the mSATA SSD drive is not recognised in Windows install. Removed the mSATA SSD - no problem booting. So there is some progress compared to <1.19 but still doesn't work.

An official response from Lenovo as to whether I should buy the Intel 310 SSD or  whether they be releasing another BIOS upgrade to address this issue would be very much appreciated. [emphasis added]

JNavas,

Thanks for listing the URL. I've found the same installation picture at different URL. I just realized they only show hardware installation, but no boot up or Windows installation.

Trouble installing Intel 510 ssd on X220 i7 usb3.0 laptop.

I have 
X220  4286-CTO i7-2620M  4GB RAMBIOS:1.16 (5.18.11)
Trying to install on Intel 510 Series- 120GB SSD.  version#: G19793-102 
The lenovo Recovery process detects the HDD but ultimately says OS does not support the HDD?
 
What would it take for me to use my $300 investment work for me?
TPM disabled - I had the recovery copied from the regular sataII hdd and the recovery software copied all data on ssd but it's not booting.

4286 CTO (detailed configuration in my posts back up in the threads) detects intel 310 80gb msata perfectly.  Thanks for the fix Lenevo.

Renice X3 120GB SSD works great so far on my X220 Tablet (4294-CTO), using it right now to enter this reply (Win7 installed).

Had a problem with it crashing every time it woke from sleep but works fine now that I'm using a generic windows driver and not the Intel drive that came preinstalled.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.

Re: the Intel 510.

 

Hopefully you have also made a windows 7 repair disc (different than the R&R disc that should put the factory image back on).  Try it.  If you don't have one you can make one from another computer.  They are not Win 7 install discs just repair discs.  Try to repair the OS R&R image.

 

Mine worked just perfectly from the R&R discs.  I am presuming you booted from the CD and initiated the SSD and formatted it.  Given that the R&R discs should lay down the original C: Drv as well as the Sys partition as well as the Recovery Partition.  So you should have 3 partitions after you are finished.

You will only have the Recovery Partition on the mSATA SSD if you choose that option. Another option is to just restore the OS partition, which is all that's needed if you leave the Recovery Partition on the hard drive (saving space on the mSATA SSD drive).

 

UPDATE: That was not correct -- you are only given the option to restore the entire drive (including the Recovery Partition), not just the C: partition. My apologies for the error.
