    • After over a month now of owning this I can say that this was a worth-it purchase! I just added the extra 8GB of RAM and it runs even better. Sucks that I didn't pull the trigger for the Crucial deal on BF but I got the ADATA one just under $40 this week. In total I spent $380 before tax which is actually decent value for this laptop overall. Also might upgrade the SSD in the future.

    • Right-click on the downloaded file, select Extract to, and then select the USB drive you used to create the Windows installation media.
      The computer copies the files, including in the driver package, to the USB drive.

      At the screw where you want to install Windows, click load driver.
      Click Browse to navigate to the location of the driver.

      Select folder of the extracted files and the next window should show the driver that will install.

      Now you should see the SSD to format and install Windows.
      I feel like I'm missing something here, I'm not having any luck. You say to extract the files to the usb but it's just one .exe that is downloaded from the Lenovo website for this laptop which doesn't require extracting. My laptop will not recognize this .exe as a driver when trying to install. Is there a zip folder that I'm supposed to be downloading from somewhere and extracting?

      Edit: I think I finally figured it out, I didn't realize I had to open the .exe and enter setup wizard to be given an extract option. Seems to be finally working

    • Don't get rid of it: you may need it if you are returning the notebook, either for refund or repair under warranty.
      Thanks, didn't think of it in that way.

    • 1. What are you all doing with the 128 SSD? Selling or using it as an external? If external what enclosure?

    • Thanks Op and all others for their help and input in helping me set up my Laptop - ended up with 1TB SSD (Kingston A2000, from CanadaComputers), Adata 8GB RAM (Amazon) and Office from Rabba (PM for details or search on RFD).

      Two questions:
      1. What are you all doing with the 128 SSD? Selling or using it as an external? If external what enclosure?
      2. There was a triangle shaped thingy that was holding the 128 SSD in place - I removed that and screwed the 1TB SSD with the screw - didn't know what to do with the triangle shaped thing - so didn't use it. Should I have used it? The new SSD seems to be holding in place just with the screw.

    • Was out of town so finally booted this laptop up today. Is it just me or is the bloatware almost nonexistent? I'm thinking I might just uninstall the couple that I see and not bother with full reinstall. Thoughts?
      Yep - aside from some of the pre-installed Lenovo apps and a few others like McAfee, there was surprisingly little bloat on this PC. I just deleted some of those apps, and did not bother with a clean OS install. Windows 11 is super snappy and responsive out of the box (after adding the 8GB RAM upgrade).

    • A stupid question, did you try to install Windows on the SSD?
      Rookie at this, but yes we're trying to install windows on the SSD but we can't find the right recovery disk. It's not recognizing any of the files we've downloaded to our USB to re-install windows.

      Swapped the RAM and SSD but getting a 'Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed' error. Anyone have this same problem? Looking for a fix on YouTube but it hasn't been any help.

    • can anyone clarify whether we actually need magical jelly bean?

      i just want to do a fresh install of windows 10. it should recognize the key in the bios, no?
      without installing a new SSD, i dont need the lenovo driver right? (as mentioned previously for some users)
      No, you do not need to use "magical jelly bean" since the BIOS/UEFI has the Windows key embedded in it.

      Yes, the new Windows installation will read the product key from the BIOS/UEFI.

      You need the storage driver for fresh install of Windows also. Without the storage driver, Windows installer will not load the SSD.

    • The thing is, there are quite a few apps that I use for my small business that are not available on the microsoft store
      S mode off is regular Windows. Might as well turn off now because eventually you ll want to or need to turn off. :)

    • Interesting that Chrome doesn't work. Does it matter? Microsoft's Edge has the same guts as Chrome but that doesn't mean that its policies are the same.

      How many other things that you want to use will not run in S mode? I asked that question earlier.

      Turning off S mode just makes it normal Windows. So: quite unsafe (snide comment from a Linux user).

    • Sadly, one of the screws on the laptop cover was slightly stripped and now while trying to remove it, it's become impossible to get out.

      I think, probably best for me to send it to a professional to open and then have them install the ram and ssd.

      Hoping that having a professional install it will not be too expensive. πŸ˜”

      Thanks boss I appreciate it. Also, if I do a fresh install on a 1tb SSD, using magic jelly bean to retrieve the key, will I still hace access to Microsoft 365 for one year that came with this laptop?

    • Thanks for the Pics - great help. Will hopefully receive and install the new SSD tomorrow.
      Ok. The new SSD should show no partitions. It should just show "Drive 0 unallocated Space". So you should just click "Next". Good luck!

    • Assuming you've installed the new SSD, If you're seeing something similar to below, then select each partition and delete it until you have it says "Drive 0 unallocated space". Then click "Next" and Windows will use the whole drive.

    • Guys, I still need help.

      I installed Windows media creation tool, booted the computer with this tool on USB, got into Windows installation, chose Advanced (custom) instead of upgrade - then the computer asked where to install? And said cant find any drivers. Of course there were no partitions on the drive - it was clean, but couldn't go any further.

      Where did I goof?

      At this stage I am just doing a fresh windows install and will do another when my A2000 Kingston SSD arrives. Lol, calling it a practice session.

      Please advise.

      TIA

      If you plan on a fresh install of Windows 11 from USB, go to Lenovo to download the "Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) driver" and extract the files onto the USB stick you are installing Windows 11 from. Windows 11 does not have the driver and won't see your SSD if you don't load the driver during setup.
      After you install Windows 11, go to Levovo's support site and check for the latest drivers/BIOS. Click on "Start Scan" and install the Lenovo app that scans your system.

    • I did! Don't see why not.

      On another note:

      For the Kingston A2000 - as the SSD is longer than the 128GB SSD and the tape is therefore shorter - can we use an electric tape - or is it just fine to cover with the shorter tap as much as it covers?
      It's actually a thermal pad not tape and it's completely optional.

      I just clicked your link and it shows $36. You can buy it again if you want. I installed the ADATA and it's working fine.
