When such an SSD is deployed,:
- It is detected in the BIOS and printed on the boot screen, it says "NVMe Device: Sabrent Rocket Q"
- The boot menu accessed via F12 shows the SSD, but booting Lenovo Group Limited have implemented active absolute interference so that the laptop cannot boot off it
- In Windows' installer and in ordinary Windows use, Lenovo Group Limited's crippling causes the SSD to not show up and not function. The Windows Device Manager will show the SSD but as hidden and disabled.
This shows that Lenovo Inc. are liable of crippling my private property, which has led to losses of my time and money, and expectably the time and money of other persons out there.
Two questions for the community:
1) Is Lenovo Group Limited being actively prosecuted for this damage caused to customers' private property?
2) Are you aware of circumventions whereby the hostile crippling by Lenovo Group Limited can be reversed so that >2TB SSD:s are supported?
Lenovo Group Limited's actions are unacceptable and outrageous. Followup appreciated on remuneration for their damages as well as confirmation that the Lenovo Group Limited's harmful practice is stopped.
Update: Someone is alluding to that 4TB drives would work on the Thinkpad X1 Extreme gen 4 here https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comme ... _soldered/ , however it is really unclear. If the claim is correct, it could mean that Lenovo's crippling is per SSD model or per another parameter than the capacity. This however does not mean a remedy for the damage on private property already caused by Lenovo's current and other firmware crippling.
