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

Thanks Lenovo!

 

I can confirm BIOS 1.14 for the X270 resolved the issue.  My M.2 SATA SSD in the WWAN slot is working fine now.

 

In the future, please be sure to test M.2 SATA SSDs so new BIOS updates don't break my hard drive again!

 

Thanks,

Mike

Hello.

 

What is exactly the problem you are facing after BIOS update?

Do you get the same error message I was getting?

Do you have the same combination (NVMe & M.2) as us?

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

YES, same problem! Always, until i bought x270! Nothing is worth the updates. It's perfect for 4-5 days, then crash again. Last time, after an automatic Lenovo update:

 

DSC_0014.JPGI alwas get this error, while i work. Lots of losses. Very annoying

DSC_0015.JPGThen it is. You can not do anything ...

DSC_0022.JPGThe big nothing. Realize the loss again.

DSC_0023.JPGLatest BIOS and automatic updates are ready.

Hello.

 

Was your M.2 working before updating BIOS to version 1.11 and stopped after the update or it never worked?

After you updated BIOS to version 1.14, did it work for a while and then stopped or it never worked?

Have you also tried the latest BIOS update (version 1.16)?
If it never worked in the past, make sure that your M.2 has the latest firmware, that it is compatible and that it doesn't have any problems (try it in another computer).

It seems though that your problem is of a different nature since the error message refers to your NVMe and not the M.2.
Check if it sits properly in the slot and try it in anothe computer as well.

 

Regards,

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

What is the M.2? : s

When I started the Lenovo Companion software, It says everything is updated.

My x270 product number is: 20HN0013HV

 

Lenovo Companion software downloaded the latest firmware 1.16 (maybe), but could not install it 1 week ago.

(After half way of installation; reboot, what was needed, but it was still in the critical update list. I can not installing...)

 

Today unexpectedly successfully updated, and the problems starts again. It has not started yet. 

 

I do not understand why you do not update Lenovo Companion software, all the things you need. I'm not a hardware specialist.

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

I asked you if you have the same configuration as the rest of us here and you said "yes".

We have 2 drives in our X270.

One NVMe, just like you, as the main drive AND one M.2 SSD (such as http://www.adata.com/us/feature/326) in the WWAN slot as a secondary drive.
Our problem had to do with the 2nd drive. The M.2 SSD.

You have a problem with your main (and most likely single) drive, the NVMe.

You get some BSODs (Blue Screen Of Death), meaning that sometimes you can get into Windows.

Perhaps your drive is faulty or doesn't sit properly. Or, if you get the error after some use, it might be overheating.

I'd suggest that you check your drive (run diagnostics from BIOS), try it in another machine and see what happens and make sure it has room to "breath" and remain as cool as possible.
