HDD SATA cable Yoga 11 2 details

2014-07-26, 9:22 AM

We as Yoga 2 13 owners are looking at ways to replace the 2,5" HDD with an extra SSD,
complementary to the M.2 SSD option of the Y2 13.

 

As the supplied WD 5mm HDD has  very specific connectors on both sides of the cable  (SATA express and a Lenovo specific?) we are currently not able to add regular 2,5 inch SATA SSDs.

 

 

We learned form the Lenovo Yoga 2 11 Hardware Maintenance Manual that there should be a cable that fits our Yoga's.

Cable miscellaneous parts:
c) Vienna HDD Cable SEAGET   90204934
c) Vienna HDD Cable WD   90204935

 

 

Pictures of the Seagate ST500LT032 show indeed the necessary SATA connector.

So we should order the SEAGET version of the cable to connect:

  • a 5mm 2,5 inch HDD with SATA connector or
  • an SSD with such connector and an thickness of less than 7 mm

But still I'm not 100% sure the connector on the motherboard is the same for the Yoga2 11 (left) and 13 ?

Could somebody confirm the connector type on the Y2 11 motherboard (with pictures)?

Did you conclude by looking at the photos?
Are did you try to make this connection yourself with a physical Y2 11 cable to the Y2 13 mother board?

I had those two cables in my hand, they are not compatible. Note also, there is no "seagate cable" version in part list for Yoga 2-13, and there are only two models WD HDD:

WD5000MPCK-24AWHT0

WD5000M22K-24Z1LT0

 

ZIVY0 HDD Cable WD 90205124

I guess you don't understand my question.

I want to verify the Yoga 2 11 Seagate HDD cable (part no 90204934)

So I rephrase:

 

Who knows the details (pictures, pin outs etc) of the Yoga 2 11  cable for the Seagate 5mm HDD ?

 

What we would like to accomplish:

Connect SATA SSD to Yoga 2 13 HDD connector

 

So if someone has the same close up pictures we would be helped!

Hi there,

 

I saw this post and since I am looking for this exact cable [to enable me to install an SSD in my Yoga 2 11] do you have a spare cable to sell me?!!  I need the Vienna HDD Cable SEAGET 90204934 and have contacted Lenovo but they have no stock!  

 

Best,

 

Jason

Would you believe my WD Ultraslim HDD died. i removed it from the machine to get a specialist to try and recover some really important items i need and they have gone and lst it.

 

Lenovo have taken the machine back under warranty but i'm pretty sure they'll say you have opened up it so the warranty is void even though they recommended i backup data or get a specialist to do it if i was unable to.

 

Anyway these WD Ultraslim drives are impossible to get, even Lenovo/Medion parts centre can not get them.

 

I have ask Lenovo from the Vienna HDD Cable SEAGET   90204934 and they will not sell it to me as my machine id shows the WD variety cable.

 

I can not find this cable anywhere, even eBay is a bust.

 

Any ideas?

Another amazing customer friendly move of Lenovo ?????

 

Maybe you could ask another 11s owner with the Seagate option to order such a cable,
as Lenovo is apparently not THINK®ing in solutions...
