T-480 dual boot on two SSD's – reinstall Windows



My T-480 came with Windows installed on the 128 GB Toshiba drive. I would like to reconfigure the system with Windows on the 512 GB Samsung drive and a Linux distro on the 128 GB Toshiba drive.


What is the best way to achieve this goal without driver issues or Lenovo tools issues when reinstalling Windows please? I created a Windows Recovery disk and hoped I could trick it in doing a system reset on the Toshiba drive by manipulating the boot order in the BIOS but that made no difference.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Flashing Previous Rom

Hello everybody, i have been working for the past few weeks with lenovo tab4 8 tablets (TB-8504F), and there was sort of a break between shipments in order for us here to configure all of them with our custom settings and application to be distributed before more arrived. All was going well until we noticed that that tablets with the older rom worked well when it camed to start the app on boot but with the newest version it doesn’t work. Is there any way of me getting an official rom from Lenovo and flashing into these newer devices?

Best Regards.

Dual Quadro 4000 in Thinkstation D30



I’ve recently been given a second Quadro 4000 – the same model that I currently have in my standard issue D30.

I’m curious if I can utilise this card to increase gaming graphics performance, either running in SLI mode (which as far as I’m aware, isn’t possible with these cards in this particular system), or if I can set up one card to render, and the other to drive the 4k monitor I have.

Maybe theres a better set up that I’m not aware of?



If I’m able to run the two cards side by side, how do you configure the cards to do separate tasks? Or does the machine handle that automatically with the Nvidia drivers?


I don’t use 3D graphics in this system for anything other than gaming, so I’m also fine with buying a different card thats better suited for the job. I was just hoping to use what I had to save a few £ 🙂


Any suggestions appreciated!



Reseting Lenovo ideapad 100s with built in battery

I tried turning on my ideapad one morning and it came up with the message "Your PC did not start up correctly". I tried factory reseting it and it ran into a storage problem. I also have tried hard reseting it by disconnecting the battery and cable and holding down the power button for 20 seconds and that didn’t work either any ideas?

Lenovo Explorer: 7.1 / 5.1 surround sound headphone support

 I’m getting the Lenovo Explorer, and I was wondering if I should get some better headphones. I have some nice headphones already, but I’ve read about headphones that have physical 5.1 or 7.1 speakers inside. These do not use virtual surround, but actual surround. Does the headset support such features as physical 5.1 or 7.1 headphones through the 3.5mm audio jack?
