So i had one of those RARE DAYS off work ............ and thought to update some of my 'stored thinkpads"
One of those RARE THINKPADS (with factory box and all) thought to plug in and do "UPDATES"...to the W701dsCTO.... and came across this :
1: Note for ThinkPad W700 and W700ds - RAID mode configuration
To enable ThinkVantage Active Protection System in RAID configuration, the
following software is required:
Version 1.51 or higher
- Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver
Version 126.96.36.1997 or higher
Update BIOS and Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver prior to install
ThinkVantage Active Protection System if necessary.
For more detail for each software identification and updating, refer to
release notes of BIOS and Intel Matrix Storage Manager Driver.
- (New) Added support for [u][b]Zhaoyang K29,K49[/b][/u].
- (New) Added support for ThinkPad Edge E430,E530.
- (New) Added support for Lenovo V480,V580.
so who is this Zhaoyang ? WTH is Lenovo adding names of 'coders-name/users-id' [Zhaoyang ]??
last time I chatted with mr Zhao in Shen'ing China ( developer team lead) he was very upset with Lenovo's 'developement path' ...............blah blah ...
So that's why this update came about - because of someone personal requests? not anything functional
HOW;s RAID issues being fixed in W Series /models?
If anyone has updated their DS's ( and have RAID setups) can they pls let me know if there is anything new on this update of "airbag" apps
