Well ... where do i start ! NOPE- I DONT WORK FOR LENOVO nor IBM or any way connected to their support etc , I am happen to work for a company that USES IBM & LENO items - especially laptops. We buy over 1200 laptops a year for our internal use. I am not even a teckie person - but to have good understanding and like to keep up on tech side as a side hobby!
Welcome to the forum!
Commend you to look @ TECH SPECs in DETIAL and pick up on things that might be of use to you - use that to buy items you want /need.
I am sure you read the forum rules - and thus am forbidden to write to enable pple to do things that MIGHT BE not 'kosha' - not legal.
Modifying BIOS and or Modifying the altpop internals will VOID your warranty - and any software and or drivers would defaintly have someones 'legal coyright'. I am sure you understand pple's hesitation to say and or commit to even an answer on these topics when they on PHONE or in EMAILS.
AS a long term user of IBM/Lenovo laptops I cna assure you - they are no different to SONY or ASUS etc , who generally modify/change certain things so as so ensure THEIR DESIGN works - which is why they warranty things etc betc ,, Blah blah ,,,
SO say they CAHANGE things (and if that change results in other freatures not work) its generally not intended to prevent those things you talking about ie 6GBps etc etc...
I am not sure I can LEGALLY hep you break the Code for BIOS (which is owned by somneone else) and help u 'kinda' damage/distroy your laptop. blah blah blah ,,,,
even if this forum rules premit me to write a suggestion as to how to go around that , am legally bound from my company not to do that.
So far as writing some suggestions and steps as to how to get the 6GBps truely working - you might want to check some THINKPAD series (models) as none of the "IDEA" brands would support that. That WHY you pay extra for THINK brands!!
balh blah ,,,,,I cna write fewlots more ,,,, but end of day , your SSD would 'heatup internally - starved from fresh air to cool it , and you might damage few other 'internals"....
sorry to disspoint you
