Re: T450s - battery life

my laptop has been used not only with charger since september 2016 . lenovo vantage tells batteries have 126 and 264 cycles.
I think the primary battery cycle count is too low as it has just lost a 20 % of capacity(17,7 vs 23wh )

Re: Win 7 32 on external hd -- T450s with windows 10 inside

no, that solution isnt good for me as I'vbe a WWAN module on my T450s

In any way I've found the solution. it is necessary to clone the windows 7 system from hard drive to another usb drive with specific cloning software

I'll go to try in the next few days

Yes , the tried hard drives have windows 7 pro inside . They regularly boot inside another laptop
I ve set the legacy only boot and legacy first

Do you mean to change usb UEFI bios support to Disabled ?

Re: T450s - whoc is the best solution for uprade from hybrid HD

You could put in an M.2 SATA drive in the WWAN slot for the OS and boot from there. A good one is: 256GB Transcend 2242 M.2 SATA drive TS256GMTS400S Then (re)use your hybrid for storage. Or replace it with e.g. a 500GB/1TB Samsung 860-EVO i've a wwan module now. I think i'll go with Evo ssd module

Re: Win 7 32 on external hd -- T450s with windows 10 inside

I've read there is something to do with UEFI and BIOS boot process
Old machine (SL500) has Bios while new machine ( T450s) has UEFI.

Re: t430 i5 overheat ? how to fix this

I'm sure it is a software issue. Try to create another energy plan and use it.
Another way to follow is to install the windows os again.
