Lenovo y510p self soldered m.2 slot

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I soldered m.2 slot as my y510p didn't have one. I installed ssd drive but my bios and system does not see it. Is it only bios (I have stock rev. 3.07 locked) related issue, or could it by something else I need to do to get my ssd to work?

Specify which SSD and windows version.

Any BIOS setting you might have changed? A bad soldering perhaps?

Hi the SSD is Adata premier pro 128GB 2242. System Windows 8.1 pro. I hadn't changed anything in bios. Soldering seems fine to me.

Hi the SSD is Adata premier pro 128GB 2242....

That's important info. ADATA SP900 Premier Pro 2242 ssd's have a firmware issue. It won't work with Windows 8.1 and AHCI mode in BIOS. You can however use it with Windows 7.

I don't remember all the details but a google search for "adata ssd y510p" will help.

Bottom line, if you want to use it you'll have to install Windows 7.

PS. Nice work with soldering!

I tried to start it up with other sata controller setting and bios still didn't noticed this disk.

It's a known fact, told about the adata support, that the ssd is not working on Y510P because of Device sleep function of the ssd it's not supported. Although you can install window7 with AHCI but the benchmarks are poor on writing.

I'm waiting for a Integral SSD 128gb. I should receive it by 5th of May.

It's strange because Windows 8.1 doesn't see the disk, and BIOS also doesn't see this disk. This is normal?

Shutdown then press recovery button to.enter.in bios. If everything is OK, you should see it in Bios

Hi guys. It took me a while but I managed to get the thing working. Under the connector there are 8 smd parts that need to be installed. Four of them are capacitors for AC coupling sata singals, value of the capacitors are 10nF, the other four are jumpers. I've got only picture of capacitors installed by me, I made jumpers out of thin single core copper wire.

Here are some pictures:

Hi!

One of my friend did soldered the connector to the motherboard and the capacitors and jumpers. I have win 7 OS in AHCI mode, and neither the BIOS, nor the windows system see the SSD. Do you think that these soldering are enough? So the soldering is the problem or maybe it needs some settings in the BIOS?

 

Thanks

For me it worked without any problem at all. Check the soldering, does the ssd get warm or maybe hot? I have used unlocked bios with ahci on. 

Regards.

Hi everybody,
I have a question to MWichni. How did you find out where to put capacitors and jumpers? I'm going to mount M.2 connector to my notebook (ASUS TP200SA), which has only 32 GB of eMMC memory, but luckily has a place on motherboard where M.2 socket can be soldered (ASUS produced some TP200SA notebooks equiped with M.2 socket and SSD module). I wouldn't like to damage my notebook, so I'd appreciate any guidance (unfortunately ASUS didn't give me any support).
I attache a picture of the part od motherboard where I will solder M.2 connector. This is type of M.2 connector mounted on the edge of the motherboard (so called "mid-plane" or "offset" connector), but generaly it's the same story as with standard mounted M.2 sockets.
Regards

hi Darek,

I found a connector that may match your pcb, you may buy it or even request samples

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?

      Hello!
       
      I have a notebook Asus X550CC.
      Some weeks ago my screen went black with the brightness working though (black screen but one can see brightness changes) - I couldn't figure out the root of the problem, since it was sudden and it works with an external monitor.
      Now, I was trying to install an SSD with a caddy. I went to BIOS to change the boot order, but couldn't find my SSD - so, I accidently disabled launch CSM option hoping it would recognize it or something. After that I couldn't access BIOS anymore and I have a very slow startup with dxgkrnl.sys, wdfilter.sys and CAD.sys showing not loaded in the boot log.
      I tried to:
      Remove CMOS battery for 8h  Short JRST2001 and JRST2002  Access BIOS through windows 10 troubleshooting None of the above worked for me
      The laptop does not restart or shuts down correctly as it gets stuck somewhere and I have to press ON/OFF button again in order to shut it completly. The only display I can see in the external monitor, during start-up is the windows 10 loading screen (can't see the asus loading screen) and it takes more than 5 minutes to get me there (seems like a bootloop).
       
      I hope someone may have the answer cause I'm running out of solutions 
       
      Thanks in advance, everyone!

      Hi!

      I would love to have my BIOS modded to disable the wireless whitelist.
      I tried to do it myself (dump BIOS from chip, disassemble, locate the reference to the error message "Unauthorized Wireless network card is plugged in..." memory address and modify the condition in the binary file so not to "land" in the infinite loop) but I couldn't dig to anything meaningful I could easily change.

      Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad S440 (TYPE 20BB-S00400)
      BIOS version: 73ET71WW (1.71)
      Original WiFi/BT card: Intel Wireless-N 7260 (7260HMW BN) (vendor: 0x8086, device: 0x08B2, subdevice: 0x4262)
      Target WiFi/BT card: Broadcom BCM94352HMB (I haven't received it yet, waiting for delivery)

      Manufacturer BIOS download: bootable ISO, updater for Windows
      My BIOS dump (using CH341A SPI Programmer under Linux): http://www.mediafire.com/file/mn0gfr9ext7yqrn/S440_73ET71WW.bin/file
       
      Thanks!
