New ssd in Laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi people,

So I have recently bought Lenovo Legion Y530 with this specs:

GPU: i7 8750H

CPU: 1050 Ti

1 Drive(SATA): Adata su800 512 GB

2 Drive(M.2): Adata sx6000pnp 512 GB

Board: Lenovo LNVNB 161216

Laptop works fine, I installed Windows 10 on M.2 drive(which I converted to GPT). After the installation I wanted to divide my SATA drive into 2 separate volumes. But explorer didn't see my drive at all. So I turned on diskpart to check what's going on. And here's what I saw(see Capture1.png). My guess was I just need to run this command:

"format fs=ntfs quick"

But after 20h of waiting I am still stuck on 0%.

(see Capture2.png). I also tried to clean the disk but I get this error (see Capture3.png) and the drive disappeared(comes back after rebooting). I don't know what else can I do. I am afriad that the drive is physically corrupted. Do anybody have idea what's up with that?

Did you check for the SATA drive in the Disk Management area?

Should be able to right click on the drive and Initialize it.  Is that option there?

It is and it sometimes throws an error saying sth like "disk management is not up to date and can't perform this operation". Sometimes it works fine like this time but still formating takes forever.

I made one more check on this drive. I booted up live cd Linux distro (Manjaro). I was able to format drive (ext4) with fdisk, access it and write data on it. Wired.

Problem solved.

Solution:

Windows don't like formating my drive so I did it on Linux.

1. I made sure that disk is completely wiped out.

2. I created gpt on that drive( sudo parted /dev/sda mklabel gpt) - sda is the SATA drive

3. I created new partition ( sudo parted /dev/sda -- mkpart primary ntfs 3G -1s)

4. I did a full format of the disk using mkfs(sudo mkfs.ntfs /dev/sda1)

And after booting up to Windows my drive is working.

Crazyy... 

Thanks Jstudrawa for helping me ;)

Not sure what I did, I didn't even think to boot up in Linux and try it. Glad it's working but I am still concerned that the SATA drive was causing issues.  It was already formatted as a Windows drive when you bought the laptop, right?
