Hello,My understanding is that both the T460p and T470p support PCIe 3.0 x2 via their SATAe SSD connector. The T470p has an adapter on which an M2 2280 PCIe NVMe drive can be connected and get speeds higher than SATA.  The T460p on the other hand only has this one Toshiba SATAe drive to improve on SATA speeds, and that is limited to 256GB, it is rare and cancels the WAN port for further storage. So, can the adapter from the T470p be used in the T460p? This would solve all problems for the T460p, higher speed and good capacity. Thanks

My ThinkPad P51 with Lenovo supplied nvme system SSD (Samsung PM961 MZNLN512HMJP-000L7) is crashing lately during heavy I/O.  I don't know if it's a hardware problem or possibly a firmware bug. I'm looking for advice on how to troubleshoot. The system is under warranty.  I want to avoid spinning my wheels with service. I'm current with Windows 10 Pro and Lenovo updates.  I've got the latest BIOS. There doesn't seem to be any firmware updates available for that drive as it is supposed to be supplied by the OEM.  Samsung magician doesn't support that drive because it is the OEM edition. When the problem occurs the drive goes offline.  This causes Windows 10 to crash (blue screen) and reboot.   No windows system log entries are written since the drive went off line.  No dump is available. I first noticed the problem when trying to do a full backup. The built in diagnostics see no problem.  They do a quick scan that isn't enough I/O to trigger the problem.  A chkdsk to scan for bad sectors will cause the system to crash. If I boot into a Linux rescue environment, I can see the same problem occur just trying to do a sequential read.  Usually after reading about 60-100 GB the drive goes offline.  There are messages in dmesg about reseting the nvme controller and capacity going from 512 GB to 0. I wouldn't mind getting the drive replaced by the warranty, but I don't want to waste a lot of time ...

Yesterday I installed a Samsung 950 pro 256gb m2 pcie nvme ssd into a Dell E7270
Older configuration was with a sandisk regular sata 3 ssd. After replacement did a bios reset twice, once factory reset, once custom. (I left sata on ahci.)
I chose to install windows 10 pro x64 by using the uefi/gpt methode. Legacy options off.
Installation went without a problem. Afterwards I installed the Samsung nvme driver 1.4.7.17.
Also the Samsung magician software. It reports a link speed 8Gbps (is ok), link width 16 Gbps (should be 32?) .
Is there a way to change the pcie link width from 2x to 4x? I thought this ultrabook did support x4.

For several months, I have had Samsung Magician 4.97 installed on my P70's Windows 7 and Windows 10  boot drives -- both are original Lenovo-suppled and installed 512 GB Samsung NVMe drives.  This utility offered limited functionality, simply recognizing the drives and allowing them to be benchmarked, tested and described but nothing else.  No ability to update firmware, adjust caching or over-provision the drives.  Moreover, Lenovo has previously not responded to my posted queries regarding how to update the firmware on these units, as they are out of sync -- one of the devices has a much older rev. level than the other and I dare not try to set-up a RAID array under these conditions. I was hoping the newly released Ver. 5.00 of Magician would remedy this.  However, circumstances have become worse, as the utility does not even "see" the two NVMe drives. Does anyone else have experience with 5.00 or a potential fix to the firmware update issue?  Any insights or opinions would be appreciated.

up until windows preview build 14986, the pcie driver "Mobile 6th Generation Intel(R) Processor Family I/O PCI Express Root Port #5 - 9D14" (v10.1.1.27) correctly detects the "Standard NVM Express Controller" storage controller and the Toshiba THNSN5512GPU7 NVMe disk attached to it. starting with windows preview build 15002 (and 15007), the included pcie driver has troubles detecting the storage controller - during bootup, it is detected 4 times, with each time on a different device id. subsequently, the drive is also added 4 times, resulting in boot controller errors & timeouts and failed sleep mode/shutdowns. the included chipset driver in these latest builds seem to have been bumped to v10.1.1.33. the problem can easily be replicated by using unmodified recovery boot usb sticks made from the official isos, and then checking in a recovery console. it is thus not related to anything installed in my system.

It's the Samsung 950 PRO with the PCIe connection and NVMe support.

-edit-I was able to install windows by loading the F6 drivers for Intel Rapid Storage.
But not the less funny part, I only hit about 1000Mb/s reading while it should be around 2500Mb/s.Now samsung has a special NVME driver but that states no NVME drive is installed.Also samsung magician does not detect the drive correctly. The name is all weird and it has 0Gb storage.
Did anyone already come accross this issue?And if so how did you solve it

Im also interested in E5570, some questions:
1. Quite many user reviews complain about high-frequency noise coming from mobo or PSU unit. Can you confirm?
2. Would you know if any available Dell SSD option is actually NVMe?
Also, the trouble is, you have to buy M.2 SSD from Dell in order to get 6cell battery.

Hello,
 
I have a M900 and an Samsung NVMe SSD 960 EVO M.2. On the Aminboard is a slot for a M.2 device. This is not the right one for the Samsung SSD. So I have bought an adapter (aqua computer - kyroM.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 NGFF PCIe SSD, M-Key mit Passivkhler). After installing (PCIeSlot 4x) and booting the SSD is not recognized in the BIOS and in Windows (10 Prof. 64Bit).
Where is the problem? Is the adapter wrong?
 
Mod:  edited the Subject line with a problem description

That card you ordered definitely is not right.
 
I think this StarTech PCIe card is more what you need.
 

Supports PCIe M.2 SSDs
The adapter supports PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe (M Key) and PCIe-AHCI M.2 SSDs including 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 drives. The expansion slot adapter supports the most common drive sizes including 110 mm, 80 mm, 60 mm and 42 mm.

Hi, I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro (x64) on my X1 Yoga, installed in UEFI mode. I wish to encrypt the drive with Bitlocker with TPM and PIN. Another user on a different thread alluded that this is not possible as the X1 Yoga I have uses a PCIe-NVMe disk, for which there is no hardware support for Bitlocker. Is this correct or am I confused?

A:Lenovo X1 Yoga (20FQ) BitLocker with TPM and PIN

I meant you cannot use the AES hardware engine of the NVMe SSD (if a SED like the OPAL2 option) - but you can use software BitLocker just fine. This means the CPU will have to do the crypto instead for some performance penalty depending on your I/O - see CPU utilisation during a benchmark for example. Also do note that using FDE (full disk encryption) on a SSD is not "great" as the whole disk "looks full" to the SSD - so you may need to over-provision for best performance. You can also use "encrypt only used space" instead. There are pros and cons for each.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

Hi, the PSREF document for the T480 mentions that the M.2. 2280 SSD slot has 4 PCIe lanes (see http://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/ThinkPad/ThinkPad%20T480/ThinkPad_T480_Platform_Specificatio...). However the german site campuspoint.de who sells campus models of the T480 states that the M.2 2280 SSD slot in this model (unlike the T480s) is limited to 2 PCIe lanes, just as on the previous T470. I wanted to be sure and asked them, and here is their reply: We were stumbling over the same point in the PSREF. The difference to the former Models like T470 and T570 made us suspicious, since the new models use a very similar Adapter. So, we made a simple test. We took a T580 with a Samsung PM981 SSD, which should be able of up to 3200 Mb/s of read performance and made a simple benchmark. Our test showed a read performance of roughly 1800 Mb/s at max. This is about the same score as we had with the T470 and T570 Models and just slightly under what is theoretically possible with two PCIe Lanes. It looks like Lenovo just didn?t mention the restriction by the Adapter. This has nothing to do with Campus Models or not. The Campus Models use the same parts as used in other Thinkpad models. As you mentioned the T480s doesn?t have this issue.  Can Lenovo confirm there is a mistake in the PSREF of the T480 and T580 with respect to the number of lanes for the M.2 2280 SSD slot?

It's not working although it shows under System Devices to be installed, the latest version, but I cannot use any of my Lenovo apps. Under events in Systems Devices it has a note that says : "Device ROOT\SYSTEM\0003 requires further installtion" What can I do th get the driver working as it should. Thanks

I just purchased a new T480 with the 1Tb SSD drive. In device manager the drive is listed with the following model attributes: SCSI\DiskNVMe____SAMSUNG_MZVLB1T0EXA7SCSI\DiskNVMe____SAMSUNG_MZVLB1T0SCSI\NVMe____SAMSUNG_MZVLB1T0ETwo questions to the group please: 1)  The driver in use for the drive is a "generic" Microsoft driver  V10.0.16299.371   dated  2006 ....I would have thought there would be a more recent / more efficient driver for this drive? 2) Write Caching is enabled in the driver.  I'm no wizard at this, but it doesn't seem like that would be necessary? Thanks for any help!Jim

Hi,
I have a Dell XPS 15 9560 with a SK Hynix 512GB who gives me 1,800 and 800 mb/s.
 
I have the option to choose a Samsung PM961 512GB and I want to see a real benchmark from anyone, I want to confirm that this drive is faster.
I can not find recent reviews about it.
 
If I can get more speed, would be awesome for me.
And yeah I can notice the difference between my 960 EVO on my desktop and my laptop (SK Hynix 512GB).

I have just purchased a new Dell XPS 8920 that comes configured with a 250GB NVMe M2 drive as the boot drive and I?d like to replace this with a Samsung 1TB 960 Pro MVMe M2 drive however I can find no way to load the Dell OS Recovery in a way that it can see the new disk and load Windows 10.   BIOS sees the drive, but not the recovery tool.   Has anyone got any suggestions or tried to do this?

Hi,I am purchasing a 15" Lenovo Y700. Also, upgrading it with a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SSD, pretty common, I know. However, I was looking into these NVME based SSD's, particulary - SSD Samsung 256GB ZVPV256HDGL and how they are faster, but I can not find any information showing that the Lenovo Y700 will be capable of utilizing the capabilities of such an SSD or even support it. If anyone can enlighten me on this matter I would be really grateful.Have a nice day 

A:Lenovo Y700 SSD NVME support

The Lenovo Y700 supports  M.2 SATA SSD, which isn't PCI-E based NVME storage. The Samsung 850 Evo is probably the fastest option for this laptop.
