Preferred Solution: X1 Carbon: Boot from SD Card

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 all. I am new to this forum, so I hope I don't break any rules.I have 2 questions about the Thinkpad X1 Carbon Gen4 for you all; 1. Has anyone here successfully installed an operating system with legacy boot on an SD-card in the card-slot without touching the internal SSD:s boot block, and then be able to actually boot directly from it? In other words making it bootable only if you interrupt the boot sequence and manually choose another boot device.2. Will the SD-card reader handle the relatively new 256GB capacity microSD-cards? Can anyone confirm? I am aware it can handle the new UHS-II rated low voltage cards, but I am unsure about the maximum storage capacity. Any input on these matters will be greatly appreciated. I am having a hard time getting answers out of my buddy google on these issues. Cheers!

I would like to be able to boot my X1 Carbon 2017 5th Gen using Ubuntu installed on a microSD card.  I've spent time trying to figure this out and googling, but haven't been successful.  I would prefer this rather than Ubuntu on a USB stick for battery savings as well as covenience.  Any ideas or suggestions on how I can make this work?

A:Boot X1 Carbon 5th Gen using Ubuntu on MicroSD card

Good day.
 
This question comes up from time to time. In each case, the conclusion is that it's not possible due to the way the internal card slot interfaces with the system.If you'd like to scan through other members' experiences, you could use the search box on the upper right with: "boot sd card" for key words. A good number of suggested threads were shown when I tried just now.Regards.

Hello, genealogyxieYou are right, only Sierra em7345 (LTE/3g) and Ericsson n5321 (3g) wwan modems are compatible with x1c gen3. Note, they must have Lenovo FRU p/n, 04X6014 and 04W3842, respectively.em7355 (Gobi 5000) isn't in the compatibility list.

Can anyone say if I purchased the Sierra em7345 card for my x1 Carbon, which carrier (in USA) will I have to get a service plan with? Can It work with any carrier?

A:X1 Carbon 3rd Gen WWAN Card

HelloIt's simpler to answer about carrier and access mode (LTE, 3g) you prefer as this modem supports dozen of the US operators as well doesn't support a big part of them, including market leaders like Sprint, or supports partially (i.e.not every frequency band the carrier operates in). Also, not every operator's network covers entire US area.

Hi, rickycrc
 
Can you please take a screenshot of Device Manager? This will allow the community to see what the hardware configuration of your machine is. Did your X1 Carbon come with a WWAN card installed so that it can connect to mobile networks? Also, when posting the screenshot of Device Manager, please have the tree for Network Adapters open so we can see all the network adapters in your machine.
 
Thanks in advance,

How can I add a wireless card to the Carbon X1?  The original answer was "can't be done" becuase the computer is a sealed case and has no capability for it.  I call BS!!  The computer obviously has a slot for it, a Sim card holder, and the option to order it from the factory with wireless.  How to add wireless to a non-wireless Carbon X1?  
 
Moderator note: edited subject to match content.  Was:  Docking stations for X1 Carbon.

A:X1 Carbon: add WWAN card

You don't say which generation X1C you have, but AFAIK you can add a WWAN card.  Instructions are in the Hardware Maintenance Manual for your particular model.
 
The challenge will be antennas if they aren't already installed, and finding a card that passes the BIOS whitelist.
 
This isn't something I can address in detail, but if you'll list your MT-M - like 20FB002SUS as an example of a WWAN-upgradable unit - others will probably be able to help.  (Upgradable means that the antennas are already in place.)
 
FWIW,

So I've read many comments regarding the X1 Carbon 2015 models SD Card Reader missing. Or is it missing really? Also many people compared it to the Macbook Pro and pointed out that it still has one. The way I see it, the Apple solution has a card reader because that is a big convenience for some of the target audience of that machine. As you might know cameras and such store their data on cards and people who use cameras alot tend to prefer Macbook Pro more so than any ultrabook (or even Macbook Air for that matter) due to some extra horsepower in case they do video or photo editing etc. It needs to be portable, last long on batteries and have a little punch. So few ultrabooks have this and in such a premium package and that is why it is popular. I have a similar reason to look at X1 Carbon, it is portable and now with 5th gen even more powerful with a 1440p screen and premium build. I don't care about MacOS so I ruled out the Macbook and that leaves me with very few options in terms of powerful ultrabook-ish solutions one of which is X1 Carbon. I might opt for a Razer Blade 2015 refresh if it becomes available soon due to similar reasons and I don't even require the extra gaming power as this will be my work laptop. (I am a self employed programmer) I think outside of testing once or twice, I have never ever used the SD Card readers on the laptops I owned. Most, no sorry ALL of the devices that use a card as storage, also provide means to connec... Read more

A:X1 Carbon 2015 - About SD Card Reader

I find the whining bizarre and ridiculous-and if you actually look, the overwhelming majority of posts about it are from one or two individuals. They just make so many posts that it seems like an issue. It's not. Most people never use it. I know I haven't. This is just the classic case of internet amplification.  As you mention, removing the card vs. connecting a USB cable? seems like a no-brainer. As far as trading it for an HDMI port? I'm all for that, since I use an HDMI cable almost every day to run an external monitor. If one really needs an SD card reader, the new XPS13 looks like a great option. I'm too wedded to the trackpoint and Lenovo keyboard personally, but otherwise it looks like a great machine.

Hello I am waiting for Lenovo's return box, but wanted to share my issue and see if anyone knows what happened. Lenovo tech support thinks its a corrupted board. First day I got it and went through normal win10 setup with no issues. It restarted a few times and updated. I then browsed the web a bit then shut down the machine. 30 minutes later I pressed start and it would not boot passed the Lenovo logo screen. If i press F1 for BIOS, it takes 20 minutes to get into BIOS. OR if i let it sit at the Lenovo logo screen for 20 minutes, it will then bring up the Boot Menu/App Menu screen, but nothing is listed under the Boot Menu. It does not matter if on battery or AC power. I tried F9 to reset BIOS and then F10 to save with no luck. It will also not load into recovery mode. The reset button via a paper clip on reverse side does not help. I noticed the BIOS is 1.15 and Lenovo has an urgent update for 1.25. Did windows updates conflict with the older BIOS? Im thinking the BIOS should have been updated before any windows updates.  Any ideas?

Hello all, I have a 1st Gen Thinkpad X1 Carbon, running 64bit Windows 8.1, and I'm having trouble getting it to detect my external graphics card.  I'm using a GTX960 sitting in an "EXP GDC Beast" external graphics card cradle, powered by an ATX power supply.  I'm confident that it's plugged in correctly, as the power supply starts up when I boot my laptop, and both the cradle and the graphics card show the correct LEDs when everything is turned on.  It's plugged into my TV using the HDMI cable.  As a troubleshooting step, I did the "paperclip trick" to get the ATX power supply to stay on all the time, but the card still isn't detecting. The cradle is plugged into the X1 Carbon (1st gen) using the PCIe port under the keyboard.  I had to remove the WWAN card to make room for it.  Windows Device Manager no longer lists the WWAN card, but it doesn't seem to detect the cradle yet.  I tried downloading "DIY eGPU Setup 1.35" from "egpu.io", but i'm waiting for developer's email before I can start using this third-party app. I'm not getting any error messages, nor any strange sounds or lights from the graphics card.  Therefore, I can only assume it's a software issue. Can anyone please offer any advice on how to proceed next?  I'm struggling to find any useful information on this eGPU cradle anywhere online, so I hope this community will be able to help. I appreciate any tips you can offer. Regards,A...

Because this migration worked so well, I'll describe it here, maybe it is useful for someone else.  This will work for most migrations, not only the described one.I needed more storage and especially more memory, so had to go into the P52 direction, but I wanted to migrate my existing Windows 10 environment from my X1 carbon without much work.Completely different CPU (Core i7-7500U to Xeon E-2176), completely different mainboard. First I backed up my X1 Carbon with the free Version of the Veeam agent to a local USB drive.Then I booted up the new P52 (bought it with the cheapest SATA Harddisk, which was removed after the relocation, because it's not possible to buy it without any storage), installed the Veeam Agent also there, but only to generate a baremetal boot image for the P52.Then I moved the Samsung 960 SSD from the X1 Carbon to the P52, and booted into the baremetal recovery image to restore the backup I created for the X1 above.During restore the Veeam Agent injected all necessary P52 drivers from the baremetal image.After booting the P52 after the recovery I just had to start Lenovo Vantage, upgrade/install all software it recommended, delete my old fingerprints and reintialize "Windows Hello" to be able to use the fingerprint reader for login again.So all in all this took me approximately 2.5 hours to migrate my system from the X1 Carbon to the P52, and everything looked like before.

This is where the problems start. One you press enter to boot via NIC the screen goes black and the text ">>Start PXE over IPv4" is displayed, this lasts for about 30 / 40 seconds before exiting back to the boot menu. It never boots through to Ghost. I have double checked that I have the TFTP server, PXE server and Ghostcast Server running correctly (and has been tested using a Vaio). Has anyone else seen this issue?
