Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 2 SDXC UHS-1 Performance

2015-08-15, 22:31 PM

Hey,

 

Before I post this, remember that if you upgrade to windows 10, the recover partition becomes unusable. Recovering from problems after that is in the hands of the currently installed windows 10 operating system (which I didnt test yet, since I know that reinstalling windows 10 is quickly done through USB)

 

I read that the windows 10 installation would be smaller, since it does not require a recovery partition to be present, which already let me know that the recovery partition would be sabotaged, I quickly created a recovery disk of the previous partition and went on with the installation, something I recommend doing.

 

Remember, I'm not responsible for any damage caused by this action. These actions are all done after upgrading to the windows 10 operating system.

 

  • Go to: Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Administrative Tools > Computer Management
  • Select "Disk Management" under "Storage"
  • Select the recovery partition and delete the volume (by right clicking it) (Make sure that it's the correct partition you want to remove
  • In my occasion I had another small partition in between my main (C: ) and my recovery ones. I removed that one as well, as it had no more use in a windows 10 operating system environment.
  • After the above steps, I could right click my primary partition (C: ) and Extend Volume. Selecting the maximum amount of space and progressing the acttion until it fully completed the expansion.

Because I have not read anyone else do it, I was cautious and tested as much as I could, and at that point everything worked flawlessly. I'm happy this could be done with the default tools provided, I have had some bad experiences with external disk management tools.

 

Good luck and I hope you guys achieve the same positive results that I have : )

 

Cheers!

Hey I finally got my system today, I upgraded to W10 and now I am trying to remove the partitions.  However when I right click on the Recovery partition, no options appear other than "help" Any thoughts?

Hey dude. Apparently the system somehow still uses the partition you're trying to remove. Some screenshots of that specific Computer Management configuration would do good : )

I ended up doing a clean istal ffrom USB deleted the additional partition and expanded the Primary... all working nicely.

 

Now back to this thread's original topic. 

I did not insert my Micro SD until I finished installing W10.  

I bought this newly released 128GB Sandisk and it was recognized and working well so far...

Good on you man, hopefully you won't get any authentication issues, since I have no idea how they handle their first year licenses. Either way, let us know what kind of performance you're getting, I'm guessing it won't be far from the results I got, but it's still interesting to see what other people are achieving : )

Greets!

I did run into authentications isses.  After it booted and I was setting  up my tiles etc, all of the sudden it said I needed to activate.  There was an error message saying it was revoked by the server or something.  Apparently after doing the standard upgrade, W10 is not automatically activated, you have to actually hit a button that says activate now.

 

The only solution to this is to reinstall 8.1 and upgrade again and hit that button.  However I do not have 8.1 since I blasted the recovery partition and did not care to make a back up, so I opted by activating somehow else... but with piece of mind that I indeed have a qualifying system

 

 

As for the card performance, I actually just need it to work and not halt the system like it happened before... Based on Lenovo's comments the BUS is not the fastest so any card will do...

Hi

 

I also have bought a Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2. I am running Windows 10 on it and i have the exact same SD card as you (Samsung 64GB Micro SDXC Pro). However, I am only getting the speeds you reported on Windows 8.1 (old). That would be a max speed of about 10-11 mb/s. How did you achieve the 20MB/s? You are also using the normal internal SD reader at the back of the device, right?

 

Has anyone else managed to get more than about 11MB/s out of SD cards on this deivce (always using the internal reader slot)

 

Cheers, Chris
