Hi, I recently bought the new Toshiba RC100 m.2 2242 NVMe SSD for my Lenovo Y510p which has an m.2 port in it. After installation the SSD wasn't showing up in my BIOS and also not on my OS Win 10 disk management. So I did a bit of research and installed mod BIOS for my Y510p by following the steps in the link: ( https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/3546-lenovo-y410p-y510p-unlocked-bios-wlan-whitelist-mod-vbios-mod/ ) There are a lot more options in the BIOS menu now. Even after doing the mod it's not showing up. The SSD works on my friend's "new 2017 dell gaming laptop" which has m.2 ssd support in it. I don't know what exactly to configure my BIOS to make it work. I've just done some hit-and-trial configs which have eventually failed. If someone can help solve it Pleasee!! P.S. : I can share all the available options available in the BIOS if required.
I have an older Lenovo ideapad y500 barely ever used I mean it's been in a box on a shelf in the closet for about 2 years, It's in Mint condition. My question is, what is the point of the M.2 SSD for? See I have taken it out and it doesn't affect the performance or anything, absolutely everything works as it should and as it always has. I've tested the M.2 SSD with HD Tune Pro, and everything is good and everything is good through Intel S.M.A.R.T as well. So WTH did they charge me a guestimate of around $120.00 extra for a SSD that seems to be pointless? I'll post full specs below. I got a Sager NP9170 for Christmas 2 months after I purchased this Lenovo y500 that's why I parked it, the Sager had been hit by Lightning so I brought out the Lenovo. But it's apples and oranges here, and absolutely everything is locked on the Lenovo, WTH do they do this? Also is there some way i can unlock the CPU and GPU's? I think she'll run more like the Sager if I can somehow get this thing unlocked. Maybe the appropriate direction and I could beef this Lenovo up, If not Hell I'm going to sell it. ANYONE NEED A FAST NEW LIKE LAPTOP? ANY TAKERS OUT HERE? LOL Thanks So Much!
