Lenovo M710 M910 Tiny: second M.2 slot for SSD, HDD drive height, USB Type C (M710q, M910q, M910x)

Q: Lenovo M710 M910 Tiny: second M.2 slot for SSD, HDD drive height, USB Type C (M710q, M910q, M910x)

USB Type C

There is no option for USB Type C optional connector order customize page for Lenovo M910 Tiny. But that option is mentioned in the PDF spec and on the product page.

Is it a bug of the customize page, error in spec or temporary unavalilability? I'm in US, if region is important.

Does anyone where able to order M910 Tiny with USB Type C option?

Another question is if LG Ultrafine HKMY2VC/A 24.5" 4K Display will be supported then? It has USB Type C only connector as far as I know.

Second M.2 Port

There is a second M.2 port / socket (or something that have the size of the M.2 port / socket). What is it for? Why not in spec? Can second NVME M.2 SSD could be installed there? Or is it for Intel Optane or what?

The port is drawn on page 6 of HMM for M910q (https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m910q_ug_hmm_en.pdf). There is no description provided there.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,  I'm looking at the m710 Tiny.  Could I buy an aftermarket m.2 SSD to use as the boot drive in this computer?  I'm specifically thinking of the Samsung 960 EVO and wanted to make sure that I could use that one in this model.  To do that, I'm assuming I could clone the drive it comes with and then set it to boot from the m.2 in the BIOS.  Would it be the straightforward? Any reason to buy the m910 if all I want is the 2 SSDs (1 in Sata and 1 in m.2) and that's it?  I don't think I have a reason for the other m.2 slot right now.  Edit:  I'm assuming that M710 Tiny can boot from the m.2 drive, right?  That seems like standard stuff now, but still wanted to confirm.   

A:M710 Tiny M.2 Question & vs M910

Yes, to both questions.  A Samsung 960 Evo can be installed, and it can the boot drive.   Also both the M710q and M910q have one M.2 SSD slot, only the M910x has two.  Read the comprehensive posts by DSperber on how to migrate boot drive data.

Hello,
 
I want to end up with a Tiny with 1TB of SSD storage (about 250GB for boot+programs and 750GB for data) . Can you please suggest the best way to do this?
 

It doesn't appear Lenovo provides an option for 1TB of SSD, which would be the easiest solution, either with single or combined 2.5" SSD drive and/or M.2 SSD drives.
I prefer to order with an SSD boot drive and keep that in place so I keep the original OS and boot disk without having to reconfigure.
If I buy with only a 256GB SSD, is that in the 2.5" or the M.2 slot? If I do that, could I just purchase a 1TB SSD to install myself in the unused drive bay or M.2 slot?
Any other suggestions for the most painless approach to this?

Thank you.

Have my eyes on both models for a while. The main difference as I can tell they use difffernt Chipset: M710 -B250 Chipset, M910-Q270 Chipset. They both supports M.2 NVMe SSD which I will use as the OS drive unlike the M700/M900 pair. I prabably won't need V-pro as this will be my personal desktop at home. My question is that is there any reason that I should consider M910 over M710 tiny for my home usage? I know there are more 24 PCIe lanes on the Q270 Chipset over that 12 lanes on B250. But I don't think M910 tiny took advantage of that, am I right?

I just bought the M910X tiny desktop and 2 identical Lenovo ThinkCentre monitors. I installed the desktop into one of the monitors, which works fine. How do I connect the second monitor to the PC? It seems like the DisplayPort showing on the back of the monitor is only for plugging a separate device into the screen, not video out to a second monitor from the PC. Is that right?

I can see that the i7-7700 CPU supports 64G of RAM but product page says 32G is maximum of amount memory M910x can be configured with. I'm not clear whether that's just what Lenovo is willing to install before shipping it or 32G is indeed the maximum amount of memory that can be installed on M910x? Next, what is "M.2 - NVMe" exactly? Is it PCIe x4 or something else? What dimensions the installed M.2 cards are? What module keys are used?  What dimensions are supported?  Who is the memory vendor/manufacturer? I'm also wondering if I can get away with just two M.2 cards and no SATA3 hard drive? The configurator apparently will let me do it but I have really no clue if I will be able to use M.2 cards as main storage to install an OS. No experience with the M.2 cards here... Lastly, I've seen on the forum that there is (used to be?) a problem with M.2 cards heating up pretty badly in idle mode on M900 (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/forums/v3_1/forumtopicpage/board-id/tc01_en/page/9/thread-id/19277) and reaching critical temperatures when under load. Something realted to ASPM being broken. Is this still a problem? Does it affect M910x? I'm leaning towards using M.2 as the main storage and that problem soun... Read more

Hi, I just bought the M910X tiny desktop and 2 identical Lenovo ThinkCentre monitors. I installed the desktop into one of the monitors, which works fine. How do I connect the second monitor to the PC? It seems like the DisplayPort showing on the back of the monitor is only for plugging a separate device into the screen, not video out to a second monitor from the PC. Is that right? Sorry if this is a stupid question! Thank you

Is there a recommended / supported wired NIC for the M910s (SFF)? What about adding a second wired NIC to an M910q (Tiny)? Thanks,

I was updating the BIOS for my M910x Tiny via system update, the program just started then suddenly some system notification popped up and my mouse wouldn't move, as the BIOS upgrade window under Windows 10 also seemed frozen. I know it was my fault that I didn't wait long enough but just pressed the power button to shut down the machine, so when I power it up again I can only hear repeatedly 2 short beeps and the system couldn't boot anymore.So is there any solution I can fix the BIOS? I've seen the Clear CMOS/Recovery jumper method on other model, but not sure what is the correct procedure on M910x yet. Thanks for any help!

I have purchased a Tiny-in-one monitor and a M710q system.  My problem is the M710q will not fit in the TIO monitor.  The specs for the TIO did not say it would hold a M710q, but I thought the specs had just not been updated to include it.  The M710q and a M700 look identical in size and placement of ports on the rear.  Thus I have several questions.  Can someone tell me definitively if the M710q and TIO combo should work?  Do I have a defective unit in either the TIO or M710q?  Is there a newer model of the TIO for the M710q?  Lenovo engineering has created a support ticket 404CDRS with their engineering group for this.

A:M710q does not fit in Tiny-in-one monitor

Forgot to post that Lenovo support opened a support ticket 404CDRS with their engineering group for this.

Hello all,I have a ThinkCenter M710 Tiny. I am looking to install a Bluetooth and WIFI card in there ....I found this: Intel 8265 Generic, 2230, 2x2 AC+BT (8265NGWMG)I am not sure it is going to work. It looks I would have to get cables and an antenna or 2.Any suggestions? I dont mind getting them from Lenovo, but want to make sure I get what I need to avoid returns.I would really like to enable Bluetooth as I have a nice keyboard and mouse that could be used and would declutter a port on the box (dongle).Any suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks in advance.Jcruzin

A Drobo 5C DAS connected to a Lenovo M710q host will only show up as bcdUSB 2.10 high speed rather than 3.0 superspeed.  ESXi was initially VMware-ESXi-6.5.0.update02-8294253-LNV-20180605 and later updated to 6.7 from vmware's repository as part of troubleshooting.  ntfs throughput for the Drobo added as a device in a Server 2012 vm via usb 3.0 controller in the vm settings reaches only ~40MB/s.   Reverting to xhci in place of the newer vmkusb using https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2147650 has been tried and  module status was verified to confirm it did change to xhci but it still stayed at 2.10 with no change other than xhci throughput being somewhat slower than vmkusb.  Different usb cable has been tried.  Differnt usb ports on front & rear with the "SS" label have been tried. Bios has been updated.  A sandisk usb 3.0 memory stick plugged into another M710q on ESXi 6.7 does populate as usb 3.0.   An older model Drobo 5D connected to Lenovo M73 tiny or M83 tiny running ESXi 6.0 populates at usb 3.0 and reaches ~250MB/s ntfs throughput when added as a usb device in a Server 2012 vm via xhci controller in the vm settings.   Not a 1:1 comparison but it's the closest matching setup I have access to right now.  Key lines in the output below are the bcdUSB entries under the Data Robotics sections.  Any suggestions to get 3.0 out of this setup are appreciated.   BIOS Info: #0
Vendor: "LENOVO"

I have an M910 Tiny.  I ordered it with WiFi.  I've read the posts and the HMM but they haven't answered my question.   Where I need to mount the Tiny doesn't allow suitable WiFi connectivity.  I'd like to use an external antenna.  They are a dime a dozen.  They have an some length of extension coax and then a whip antenna allowing the WiFi antenna to be mounted a distance away from the Tiny itself.  However, these antennas are almost all RP-SMA connectors.  That seems to be the standard.  That is NOT what is on the back of the tiny.  They have a small little routhly 1/8" connector, that is coax.   Is there an adapter to allow me to connect an RP-SMA Antenna to the connector on the back of the Tiny?   I tried to change the rear connector and cable with a suitable RP-SMA.  The Intel Model 8265NGW seems to have two U.FL connectors but they seem smaller than typically U.FLs.  If there is no adapter (Tiny Wifi to RP-SMA) then is there a suitable replacement cable to allow me to connect the WiFi card cable with a suitable RP-SMA cable/coonnector?   Is the WiFi 8265NGW connector some form of U.FL?  What is the name and specification of that connector?  Thank you.  All questions needn't be answered.  The real issue is how can I connect a "remote" antenna, probalby with an RP-SMA connector, to a M910 Tiny?
