  1. I decided to let the computer without the battery for 10min : the m4 was detected when I booted in the BIOS so I was able to perform the firmware update. Now it's working flawlessly But I really don't understand what happened ... Thank you for your help ! Update : I tried to flash the unlocked BIOS but unfortunately, as I already have the stock v2.07, the InsydeFlash utility keeps telling me that the BIOS i'm trying to flash is not a newer version ... Do you know if I can do something ?
  2. I already tried it when I read your first message but the DOS utility is unable to detect the SSD ... I tried disabling the UEFI and using the SATA Compatibility mode but it's still not working ...
  3. You're right : it's a Crucial m4 with the original firmware ... The problem is that as the BIOS decided to not recognise it anymore, how am I going to update it ? There is really no option to perform a bios update from DOS for the v2.07 version ?
  4. Hi everyone My Y580 doesn't recognise my mSATA SSD since this morning ... I tried on an other computer and it's working perfectly so I'm pretty sure that this issue is BIOS related ^^ Yesterday I decided to get back from the unlocked version of the bios (2.06) to the stock 2.07 because I had no need of the advanced fonctions. It worked well and I was able to use my computer all the night before turning it off. So I thing the stock BIOS can't handle the mSATA SSD. But, since i can't boot on windows anymore, I was wondering if it was possible to flash the 2.07 unlocked bios using the DOS flash tool ? The only problem i see is that the 2.07 is a .rom file whereas the flash tool need a .bin file ... Any help apreciated Thank you !
  5. Ok, I checked this morning by removing the wireless card : the bluetooth is still working ! So the only remaining problem for me is the wifi-whitelist ... If it could be removed, it would be awsome
  6. Do you really think that Lenovo could have created a special 2200N version with a broadcom chipset integrated ? I'll try to remove the wifi card tomorrow just to be sure. I don't have this problem on W8 RTM.
  7. I don't think this is a good idea : there is already a bluetooth 4.0 broadcom chipset which is integrated (as the 2200n doesn't have bluetooth 4 ...). So if you install a 6235, you'll have two bluetooth devices : the intel and the broadcom ... A 6205 seems to be a better option for me
  8. Unfortunately, according to this thread (Dual-band wifi card supported by Y580? - Lenovo Community), Lenovo decided to implement a whitelist ... If you can remove it, it would be awsome
  9. Great news Thank you very much ! Do you think it will be possible to have a bios version that will remove the wifi-card whitelist system ? I really need to install a dual band wifi card on my Y580 ...
