Re: X270 Bios Update v1.11 Broke my M.2 SSD (WWAN slot) HardDrive

Hello.

 

When I had tried TS128GMTS400, it was working fine. Now this M.2 is in my T450 (working flawlessly) and I have another, larger one in my X270.

What you are describing seems like an outdated firmware and I'm assuming that you use the M.2 as your boor drive.

Download SSDscope from Transcend's site (https://www.transcend-info.com/Software/378/) and check if you need to update your firmware. Also if you have enabled AHCI. And, of course, make sure you have the latest BIOS update (1.19) in your X270 (https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/r0iuj12ww.exe).

 

Regards,

Re: X270 Bios Update v1.11 Broke my M.2 SSD (WWAN slot) HardDrive

Bumping an old thread beacuse it might be useful to others. I found this thread after acquiring an x270 and installing a Lexar NM520 NVMe drive in the WWAN slot. I can confirm that NVMe does in fact work in this slot, you just can't run two of those drives and one disables if you also have one in the regular HDD bay.

 

But anyways, it worked perfectly with bios 1.31 which was on it when I got it. I then updated to 1.63 and reconfigured the settings to my liking in the bios and this exact issue appeared. Reverting to 1.31 did not solve the problem, so I backtracked. The error message only appeared on a cold boot, restarting or waking from sleep was error free.


As part of my bios changes, I had enabled secure boot and set the boot option to UEFI only for security. I had manually made these changes, but perhaps they were enabled as part of the updates for others in the past? Reverting these settings made the error go away.

 

TLDR: Disable secure boot and set the boot option to "Both" instead of UEFI

One in 2.5 slot with caddy and one in WWAN slot? Is that so? One drive has to be SATA and only then other as NVMe can operate?
