Have an 11S that I am upgrading the SSD from 125 to 5oo msata. Had 8.1 now installing 10. When setup asks where to install the OS it shows no drives. I may need to add a driver to the win 10 disk before I burn it. Have 2 chipset options at lenovo support. both are exe files. Where would I add them? OR If I put them on a USB drive can I add them that way using the tool to add drivers within the install? When I put them on a thumb drive, I can not access them from the list of options to load a driver.

Can you see the SSD in the BIOS?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

yes. Can see it in the bios info as the proper drive. I attached it using an external adapter and can see it there too. Just does not see it as a drive when you are installing windows. It is not a drive option to install to. Formated it when using the adapter.

I am not sure this will work but go here and download the f6flpyx64 zip file. Extract the contents to the root of a USB flash drive. Click on the Windows 10 install screen that has the load driver link. You cannot use an exe chipset file to load drivers during the install.

If there is an OS currently on the disk, then download CPUz. Under mainboard what is the Chipset listed as?

Heads up the raid driver installed but still no drives seen. Also downloaded acronis True image bootable and it did not see the new drive when I tried to clone. The new drive is in the machine. Old drive in usb adapter. Acronis saw the old drive but not new drive.

Yes there is an OS on the new drive (from a clone using Reflectl) there is still a working OS on the old drive

I am not sure but if the computer is UEFI then the disk must be initialized as GPT first.

 

With the new drive in the computer start the Windows 10 install disk. At the first screen press Shift + F10. This will bring  up a command prompt. Type the following

 

diskpart

list disk

select disk X     where X is the drive where windows is installed. It will be disk 0 if the computer has only one drive

clean                This will delete all partitions on the drive but is required to initialize as GPT

convert GPT     Initializes the drive as GPT

exit      exits out of diskpart

exit      exits out of command prompt

 

Continue with the installation. Does Windows 10 now detect the drive initialized as GPT..

 

Note: You have to have your UEFI set to UEFI mode and not Legacy or CSM mode in your UEFI settings.

formatted it as GPT before. when the bios sees it in the boot sequence the only time it sees it is as a legacy option. If I enable UEFI, it does not see it as boot option. Still sees it in config but not boot

Sees it a s a external drive when I use adapter, just not when it is in the machine. Spoke with Crucial again. They think it may be due to a Marvel controller on the drive is not compatible with the Yoga 11s

Any idea on how to clear the CMOS on the Yoga? Battery is soldered on. Don't see any jumpers.

Unfortunately I don't know how to clear the BIOS other then resetting. From the posts,  you do have a drive that will boot. Download CPUz and provide the chipset listed under the mainboard tab.

 

As an confirmation, download Linux Mint 17.2 cinnamon. Burn the iso and boot. Does it detect your SSD?
