Preferred Solution: Installing a second SSD on The ThinkPad X1 Extreme

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.)

A: Installing a second SSD on The ThinkPad X1 Extreme

docet,I assume the BSOD issue could be caused by RAID settings. In this case both drives must be the same type and have the same capacity.

I think this is a simple question but no amount of research I have done in the forums has provided a clear explanation....is the Active Pen 2 just the next generation of the Thinkpad Pen Pro or is something else going on here. Trying to figure out which pen to spec with a couple of X1 Extreme's and I just want to confirm that the Active Pen 2 would be the latest and greatest??

I have a Thinkpad X1 Extreme (20MFX002US) on order.  It has one of the two M.2 SSD bays not used.  I was hoping I could add a second drive.  They are expensive so I thought I'd better check first to see if it will work in this machine before I order it.  I am NOT doing RAID with the second drive.  I just want the machine to recognize it for added storage.  This is running Windows 10.  Here is the drive I was considering:Samsung 970 PRO Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2

I just received X1 Extreme.Everything works fine and as expected, but there is one thing that keeps bugging me.It's a weird little electric noise X1E makes. Here is the electric noise.I am not sure what causes this noise but I think this happens when the fan starts running.I don't think the laptop should make this kind of noise since there is no HDD, CD, or other parts that makes noise other than fan.And fan should not make those electric noise. Also, I noticed that there is little rattling sound (only noticable when I put my ears very close to bottom of laptop). The elctric sound happens when heavy-loading and the rattling sound is unnoticeable.But I am worried if there is some malfunctioning hardware in my laptop. Does anyone have similar issue?

Hello,I recently purchased a brand new X1 Extreme, switching (like I suppose many people) from an older MacBook Pro. I am delighted with the machine, and in particular I found that the following key combinations are implemented in the same manner as the MacBook:Fn + left = HomeFn + right = EndHowever, some Fn key combinations are not implemented, and they do nothing. In particular:Fn + up = Page UpFn + down = Page DownFn + backspace = DeleteSince the combinations are implemented by the keyboard controller firmware they cannot be added in software, much to the frustration of former Apple users. So, my request is: would it please be possible to pass this request to the person who maintains the keyboard controller firmware on the X1 Extreme? Adding the missing combinations would maintain total compatibility with the current setup, and would increase the appeal of the X1 Extreme for all the MacBook refugees. Thank you for your attention.

I installed a new 1TB SSD - Crucial P1 1TB 3D NAND NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD - CT1000P1SSD8. Partitioned and formatted in Windows 10, everything seemed fine. After a little use I started to get intermittent problems. Sometimes before Windows boots I get a  '2104: Detection error on SSD2 (M.2)'. Sometimes the drive disappears from Windows. Sometimes copying a file from the drive will hang and when I try to look at the file's security options in the file explorer I just see a red X and I can't see them. Crucial's Storage Executive sometimes shows the drive and says it is healthy. Other times it does not show up. Lenovo's system health check says there are read errors on the drive.  I have reseated the card a couple of times to make sure the connection is sound. Any ideas? I'm grateful for any help. Julian 

A:ThinkPad X1 Extreme new 1TB SSD intermittent faults

I have never used that drive, but I will make a general comment.  I have often had problems with NVMe drives on several machines, related to compatibility.  This is not just Lenovo machines.  My problems have been related to timing (like, I believe, yours) and ATA security (passwords).  I think the underlying issues are very technical in nature (above my pay grade), and not easily fixed.  A year ago, I spent days chasing down an ATA security problem and I finally gave up and resold the drive.  Now, for NVMe drives, I only use those that are certified  or recommended by the computer manufacturer.  My assumption on SATA drives was that they all work fine.

Hi all, It has been about a month since I received the new X1 Extreme, and it has been quite good so far, but today, for some unknown reason, I've run into some apparent battery issues. I charged my computer overnight yesterday, and when I tried using it in class today, it wouldn't start. The red light on the ThinkPad logo wasn't flashing at all, so something was off. I tried turning it on many times, but nothing happened.  When I came home, I plugged it in and it allowed me to turn it on, but it was stuck at 46% charge and wouldn't move (even after an hour - a period of time sufficient to charge the computer up to 80%). Then, as I was writing this post, a loud 2 bell ringing sound came on and the computer shut down. When I started it up again (connected to the AC adapter), the Lenovo Vantage battery icon displayed an "X" and the Windows battery appeared empty. I made sure to back up everything and updated BIOS and other drivers just in case, but nothing seemed to work. If I disconnect the AC adapter, the computer immediately dies. Like this, the computer is no longer useful to me since I need it on the go.  I'll contact Lenovo support once my schedule frees up a bit, but if this has happened before and you've found a solution, I'd like to get this back to normal as soon as possible. Thanks,  Reilly

Hi there, I have a brand new Thinkpad X1 Extreme.I heard of a problem regarding some new generation Thinkpads with a BIOS option called "BIOS support for Thunderbolt", which is needed for a proper running Linux installation.On Notebooks like the P52 or some Yogas enabling this option effectively *bricks* the device.See: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/Lenovo-P52-bricked-by-selecting-BIOS-thu... Can anyone of you confirm that this behaviour appears with the X1 Extreme as well?

Hi All I have an X1 Extreme which for the most part I love. However, I am getting seriously frustrated. For 8 hours a day I have the laptop connected via USB-C to a "Hybrid USB-C with USB-A Dock" via the supplied USB-C cable. In the dock, I have 2 x Benq 24" 1080p monitors connected via DP, a Cherry wireless keyboard/mouse dongle, and a Sennheiser headset for VoIP. The dock is connected to power using the supplier power brick and cable. A few times a day I will get a 'user-mode driver crash' where the dock and all the connected peripherals will crash. The laptop continues to function even though the lid is closed. If I open the lid, all is well on the laptop but the connected components remain 'frozen'. If I unplug the USB-C cable and reconnect it, everything comes back ok. I've tried removing the Cherry dongle and plugging it directly in to the laptop - same issue. Also done that with the Sennheiser. I'm using 1.00.13 of the driver for the dock, and it's on the latest firmware V10010 all from here The laptop works fine when it's not using the dock. It appears to freeze more often when I open a new tab in Chrome, or during a Microsoft Teams call, which seems to suggest it's a 'load' thing that is causing the driver to crash?  I've raised it with Lenovo and they sent me a new cable and closed the case. It's getting to the point where I'm wishing I'd stayed with my previous X1 Carbon. Any help appreciated!

Hi, I purchased the X1 Carbon Yoga approximately 6 months ago and i must say I'm highly disappointed. For a flagship laptop the battery life is appalling, with my device struggling to get 4 hours with a moderate load of browsing and office productivity and at 60% brightness well shy of the 10+ hours promised and well under any reasonable measure for an ultrabook. Ive once had the battery replaced as the device originally struggled to even give me 2 hours under battery and when i apply a light pressure to the keyboard "rest" it makes a lovely grinding noise.. On paper this is a fantatsic device OLED monitor, 360 degree screen but living with it is terrible. The fingerprint scanner often doesnt pick up my finger and requires some time to figure it out and the carbon fibre gets so DIRTY. Its near impossible to keep it clean without the oils from your fingers staining it.  I'm at a loss what to do as i believe this device just cant be improved or fixed. It's just terrible at a price point of over $3,000. akooch

I have never receieved ANY update since then (They told me it typically takes about 6 business days to fix) and this is a laptop that prices over 3k!
