Preferred Solution: Thinkpad X270 Intel 760P NVMe SSD compatablity ? Missing Internal HDD Password option in the bios.

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.)

I have an E7470 & I added a Samsung 1TB 960 Pro M.2 NVME drive to it. It is set to RAID on & legacy bios bootup in bios (not set to UEFI). I was able to load Windows 10 & everything is working as normal.However, I went to set the Bios HDD password under security, & the option is not there so I can enable it for FDE encryption. The actual option in the bios --> Security --> "Internal HDD-1 Password" is missing. I have tried every option in the bios (setting admin/system password), changing to UEFI, AHCI, etc.. I am running the latest version of the bios. Running the latest firmware for the Samsung 960.We have 170+ E7470 units. I have tested this out with 4 other units, with different bios versions. Same issue. I have also tested 4 other Samsung 960 Pro drives. Same issue. Missing option in the bios.Any ideas?Thx.

Hi, first time posting and I'd like to report a serious issue rendering the new X270 critically unstable. There's an issue with the SSD after it enters low power D3 state. After it happens, the drive (or controller) refuses to wake up. Entering D3 seems to be due to relative inactivity. Also, upgrading BIOS to 1.09 doesn't help. I can get this couple of times a day so it makes the X270 unreliable for work. This is triggering regardless of having power adapter plugged in or unplugged and it seems only related to the drive going to sleep. One time I got BSOD on Windows was when I was copying files between two external HDDs (so the internal drive wasn't busy). On Windows this results with BSOD saying it can't save core dump because of memory or drive error. Linux is little more informative about what happens and the system doesn't die straight away because it caches quite a lot of the data read from the drive (that excessive caching is also why the drive is likely to go to sleep more often). For last couple of days I was running with dmesg -wH in the background. The drive always fails the same way: [Mar21 01:31] nvme 0000:04:00.0: controller is down; will reset: CSTS=0xffffffff, PCI_STATUS=0xffff

I am looking for a new laptop. I currently have a X121e and recall it being extremely easy to configure on Lenovo's site. So I decided to look at the X270. However, having had great difficulty even starting to configure it (apparently, Lenovo does not favour Firefox any longer), I'm currently having trouble understanding the choices. The first is the choice between PCIe and SATA PointingDevice. Following some discussion, I gather this has nothing to do with any kind of pointing device, but affects my HDD/SSD choices. OK, so let's see what the PCIe choices give me. I get 5 'first hard drive' options. (Nothing I do gets me a 'second hard drive' option, so not sure about this. Or rather, I almost understand this now I've read the platform specification, the user manual, the hardware maintenance manual and various posts on Reddit. Lenovo do like to make buying a challenge!) Now, however, I've reached the end of my google-fu. Intel 256 GB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe256 GB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 - CapableIntel 512 GB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMe512 GB Solid State Drive, PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.01 TB Solid State Drive OPAL2.0 PCIe-NVMeI understand the difference beween 1/2 and 3/4 and 5 is obviously size.

Hi All, 
Tried to find a similar issue in the forums first. Forgive me if I this is a repeat afterall. 
I got an Optiplex 9010 I7-3770 SFF (VPro) used desktop recently to put into my cloud in the lab. Normally I simply check the cover again (AMT #1) and move on with the MBEx selection after F12 during boot. This one is not working as expected. Here is the sequence of events:
1. Power on the computer and F12 to get the boot options/list. 
2. I can see the Intel Management Engine BIOS Extensions option there. I select and press ENTER. 
3. Screen disappears, but comes back now "without" the Intel Management Engine BIOS Extensions option! At the top is states that "Note, some options have been removed as they are no longer valid.".
I have not seen this before. IF it is disabled, why show it... 
But in any case, the question I have is, how can I get this option to work so I can provision this box using Intel AMT/MBEx settings. The machine is enabled for MBEx (AMT #1 on the inside chasis cover). 
The BIOS revision for this box is A14. I may need to update it as well. Though I am going to wait for any responses before doing so. 
Thank you all.

On my old T420, I was able to set a HD password on my SSD in the BIOS so that if anyone ever stole my laptop and pulled the drive, they wouldn't be able to access the data without the password. I'd like to do the same with my X1 Carbon Gen 4 with 512GB Samsung 950pro NVMe HD.  However, in the BIOS, I see no option to set a HD password.  I can set a power on password, but I don't think this means the HD is encrypted.  I assume anyone can pull the HD and read all the data.

Hi there, I own a ThinkPad W541 in basically stock condition (only alteration has been to add a second 8GB Samsung DDR3 stick, same part number, and a 1TB Hitachi internal 2.5" hard drive in the Ultra Bay since I don't need the optical drive). I am running Windows 7 Professional x64 with the latest drivers for all devices as provided by Lenovo System Update. My issue is that I'm attempting to make use of the Intel Quick Sync video encoding capability that's part of the Intel Core i7-4810MQ CPU in this laptop (it's actually provided by the Intel HD 4600 GPU) and I'm not having any luck whatsoever.As noted, the drivers currently in use for the Intel HD 4600 GPU are the ones provided by Lenovo itself:  23.21.13.8875 (NVIDIA Graphics Driver)

I'm attempting to use the standalone x264 encoder, and I've also attempted to use HandBrake which does see that the Quick Sync encoder IS there and IS available (this snippet of the HandBrake encoding log is offered as proof): [05:22:57] CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4810MQ CPU @ 2.80GHz[05:22:57] - Intel microarchitecture Haswell[05:22:57] - logical processor count: 8[05:22:57] Intel Quick Sync Video support: yes[05:22:57] - Intel Media SDK hardware: API 1.17 (minimum: 1.3)[05:22:57] - H.264 encoder: yes[05:22:57] - prefe...

I never had problems imaging Lenovo Laptops, so we got a X270 as a demo and i put Windows 10 Enterprise on there, enabled the chip in bios and it is using TPM 2.0 which is the only difference compared to T550, T450 and P50 i had image. Whenever i try to start bitlocking (encrypting the drive) i'll put in a pin number, recovery is stored in Active Directory but as soon as it restarts I get the following error: "The BitLocker Encryption key cannot be obtained. Verify that the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is enabled and ownership has been taken. If this computer does not have a TPM, verify that the USB drive is inserted and available. C: was not encrypted" I can't think of anything else to fix this. Since this is a 30 day demo trial, we might as well send it back. We have NVME for HPS which I am able to put our image on and bitlock with no issues. I can't believe I don't see much online about this. I can't be the only one. Any suggestions much appreciate it.

However if I am say installing Windows 7 SP1 on say Samsung NVme drive and Samsung has released suitable drivers in the form of INF, SYS and CAT files, do I really need to integrate these MS Hotfixes in Windows 7?
Can Windows 7 SP1 supplied with Samsung NVMe drivers (Either slip streamed or during install) be able to detect Samsung NVMe drive and install itself on to it?

The actual option in the bios --> Security --> "Internal HDD-1 Password" is missing.

Running the latest firmware for the Samsung 960.When we put in another (non-NVMe drive) back into the E7470, the HD password option is there again.

Hello, I have two USB micro sd card readers:Kingston MobileLight Duo 3cHAMA 123950I also have a couple of bootable micro sd cards with various Linux distributions.My original idea was to use the Kingston reader to boot from the different micro SDs (as it is the faster reader, since it is USB 3.1), but it was not recognized by my ThinkPad as a bootable device with any of the cards. The HAMA reader, however, was. I managed to boot with both readers however, on my desktop PC, and found out that the Kingston reader is recognized as a "USB SD/MMC" device, and the HAMA one as "USB HDD". My ThinkPad does not have an option to boot from a "USB SD/MMC", but only from an "USB HDD", which is why only the HAMA reader works. Does anybody else had this kind of problem? Is there a way to trick the ThinkPad into booting from an "USB SD/MMC" reader? Would a BIOS update/downgrade help? P.S. Booting from the internal SD card reader is not possible (without booting first into some boot manager, like GRUB and configuring it), as it is connected to a PCI. This is something I would like to avoid. P.S.2. I also tried putting every USB boot option available in the ThinkPad BIOS (including "Other USB") as a first boot device, but it still couldn't find the Kingston reader.

Hello, I have recently purchased Precision 3510 laptops with the intention of using them for research on Intel's new Software Guard Extensions (SGX). These laptops come with the required CPUs that support these new CPU instructions and (we thought) the required BIOS support as well.
In the BIOS for the laptops, there is an option for enabling SGX, but when enabled we are not able to install any of the official Intel SDKs on Windows OR Linux. Additionally, we ran an SGX test program that would dynamically detect the SGX features using CPUID and Machine Specific Registers (MSRs). It successfully detected the SGX hardware support (i.e. the SGX instructions are physically on the CPU chip), but it showed that the BIOS flags controlling the startup of SGX were not enabled (possible SGX specific MSRs have not been set). The specific CPU flag that needs to be set is described here: https://github.com/ayeks/SGX-hardware . Here is a quote from that page that describes what is needed for SGX to work, "The CPU and the motherboard BIOS must support SGX. SGX is turned off by default and must enabled via MSR.IA32_Feature_Control.SGX_Enable. Only the BIOS can make changes to the IA32_Feature_Control".
For reference, we are using the latest BIOS version for our model - version A07. Also, the CPU we have is the Intel Core i5 - 6300HQ CPU @ 2.3GHz. 
I hope we can resolve this issue in a timely manner as we are not able to use these laptops for their intended purpose... Read more

Hello,
i own a vostro 3560 Notebook, i7, 8GB, 32GB msata and i replaced the HD by a Samsung 850 Pro SSD / 256Gb. Both ssds have been formated - i did not want to use the Intel rapid storage / start technology. The problem now is the following:
When i install Win 7 / 64 bit, this  only works in the "Intel rapid storage" mode (bios-option). If i try it with ata or ahci, the instalation hangs up after the first reboot at that point, the four windows- colours come together. There appears no bluescreen - the system only stopps.
I tried to renew the bios or changed it to version 13 and then back to V17 - but no sucess.
After i installed win 7 in this mode, I tried the regestry trick with the 0 instead of the 3 to load the ahci driver. I renewed the ahci-Driver manualy , and after that, i played with the ata driver in the same way. There always is the same result: the system freezes while booting when the colours come together. Now with  a blue-screen ;-).
The system only works, when in bios the irs-Option (instead ahci) is set.

Any ideas ... and sorry for my english ;-)

I can't get anything except this white cursor. The machine still seems responsive - I can turn keyboard locks on and off and if I do control alt delete I see the screen flash and then come back to the cursor so it is definitely rebooting. I've tried rebooting and holding down F1, F8 as well as pretty much every other key on the keyboard. I've taken out battery and AC, held power for 30 seconds then plugged back in and its still stuck! Does anyone have an idea how to get this laptop to boot again? I can't enter BIOS at all, just this white cursor in the corner of the screen.   

A:help! thinkpad t460p bricked after disabling intel AMT - no BIOS/UEFI

First, do you have warranty remaining?  If yes, call for service; don't take it apart.
 
If no, do the same thing you did (remove battery, etc.) plus disconnect the coin-cell (CMOS) battery.  You remove the back cover and it is to the lower right.  Let it sit for 30 seconds before putting it back together.  This will reset the BIOS to default settings.  DON'T DO THIS IF YOU HAVE A SUPERVISOR (BIOS) PASSWORD THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW.

Hello,     I was recently prompted to install the following updates but I am unsure as to what they mean and if it is absolutely necessary/recommended to install them. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.  Edit: My BIOS update also asked me to choose from two options: Update BIOS or Update Model number.  I have updated neither as I am unsure what it means and why I see that message. Can someone please tell me what it means? Thank you.

Configuration: 1x Intel Optane Memory Module - 32GB M.2 2280 80m1x M.2 42mm to M.2 extension adapter Problem: Tried installing memory module in P52s chassis, chassis only supports up to 42mm M.2 add-in cards. Purchased aftermarket 42mm to ribbon cable extension adapter to fit the module into the chassis. Attempted to install Intel Optane Memory driver from Lenovo, the Intel Rapid Storage technology application did not report the prescence of the Optane module after the fact. Uninstalled Lenovo provided software, installed Optane software directly from Intel, Intel installer noted that my BIOS does not support Intel Optane Memory. Question: Will Lenovo continue to update the BIOS and will I forseeably have support for the module at some point in the future? What would be the avenue to escalate this issue if it is not currently on their roadmap?

Hi,

i am running a windows 7 pro x32 on an
asus p5ld2-vm, socket775 and
intel pentium d cpu with 2.8ghz, 2 cores, 2 cpu.
the bios is american megatrends inc. 1303, 19/03/2007
with 3gb of ddr2.

the problem is,
i could not get the vmware 6.5 to host a 64 bit guest os.

"attempting to load a 64-bit applicatoin, however this cpu is not compatatible with 64-bit mode."

i notice that it is caused by vt, but i can't find it anywhere on the bios screen.

also, do you know if my pc/ mb and cpu described above support the 64 bit guest?

i have never been running a 64 bit on this pc yet.

but, the asus website provides the bios for vista 64bit, so my guess is that this cpu (although its ******) but still capable of handling 64bit, namely, vista.
the website doesn't have services for win7 tho.

can you help?

A:bios is missing virtualization technology (vt) option what should i do?

What its asking does not have to do with being 64bit,

It requires that you have a motherboard and CPU that support vurtilization and I'm sorry to have to tell you but it seems that your motherboard does not support that Feature, This is not something you can upgrade your bios its a physical hardware limitation.

And you can not have a 64bit guest OS on a 32bit Host it is not possible with VMware.

I can choose which TPM to use on T550, T560, ThinkStation P310 but not on ThinkCentre M900. As we have problems with the discrete TPM on all our M900 Systems I would like to switch to Firmare TPM / Intel PTT. But this option is missing on the M900 systems.

Hello - I have an HP Envy 700-047c. It came with a 2 TB HD. I put in another 2 TB HD same model/type. The system in the BIOS and Windows 8 sees the new drive. However, when I boot and go into F10 BIOS/HP Setup utility, go to Storage menu, select Storage Options, my only option is SATA Emulation and the only 2 select options it shows are AHCI and IDE. This is where I should see RAID option - it is not there.I tried changing SATA ports on the motherboard - no help.I tried disabling Secure Boot and UEFI and chose Legacy - no help.I updated to latest BIOS for this PC - no help.I installed Intel Rapid Storage Technology software and can see the 2 drives within Windows but there is no create option on the Status page like there should be (because you need to enable RAID in the BIOS which the option is missing).I looked on the motherboard and don't see any jumpers that are labeled RAID (ie. some physical trip).I called Intel and they confirmed the Intel chipset I have is RAID capable but to contact HP to see if they turned off. I contacted HP and twice they said they are not trained in RAID and do not support it. I contacted the local Microcenter tech support and they found a link on this website talking about how to go to the area I'm in - but the RAID option is not there. Does anyone know how to get RAID enabled on this HP 700-047c in the BIOS/Setup utility? Help!

A:RAID is not an option/not available/missing in BIOS Storage ...

Hi, I did review the Storage settings in the BIOS and I didn't find a RAID support setting. The H61 chipset does support RAID depending on the chipset SKU. It appears that HP did not incorporate the H61 that supports RAID into your PC or has disabled RAID support in the BIOS.  The other possibility is a BIOS bug. There is a BIOS update posted for your PC but I don't think that it will enable RAID.  I'll tap HP on the shoulder and see if RAID is supported or if there is a BIOS bug.

We're currently setting up a batch of new T470 (Model 20HES0FW00). We replaced the internal Intel NVMe with WD Black SN750 NVMe SSDs. After the hardware upgrade, the option to set the harddisk password in UEFI is missing. According to WD, the SSDs do support ATA security. As far as I understand, this is the feature needed to support the UEFI harddisk password option. Any ideas? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

do someone know a procedure to remove de bios pass on a thinkpad t43 ? I've seen this procedure http://sodoityourself.com/hacking-ibm-thinkpad-bios-password/ but i'll rather hear from you guys first, instead of tweaking the chip.

If someone knows about a pass software like the dell latitude one or similar i'll thankyou a lot.

Cheers.
 

A:IBM Thinkpad t43 bios password

the T43 password removal can only be doing using special i2c programmer. there are no master passwords for these laptops.
