Recently I bought Intel SSD 330 series for my notebook.
Regarding to user manual I’ve downloaded software for migrating data from HDD to SSD. But I had “strange” problem. My notebook “didn’t see” Intel SSD. Instead of Intel SSD my notebook displays WD SSD in device manager (Device manager shows WD SSDSC2CT180A3). In that time I had installed WD SES drivers on my notebook. It seems that my notebook uses WD drivers for Intel SSD.
I couldn’t migrate data from HDD to SSD with Intel® Data Migration Software. So I change HDD in my notebook with SSD and reinstall Windows again. Now everything is working fine, but I didn’t find reason why is this happened.
I suspect that I had “driver problem”.
This post is just announcement for future similar problems and please put your comments. Maybe we can help somebody in future.
It seems that Lenovo have big fail with Windows 8 drivers
Few days ago I decide to reinstall my laptop from scratch. First I backed up all data on, and then I reformate my HDD and install Windows 8 x64 Enterprise. Everything seems to be fine except one thing. I couldn’t start my Wireless Network Card.
I checked in device manager and drivers was OK. No exclamation marks or similar failures. But I couldn’t connect to my Wi-Fi network.
As far as we all know, Lenovo have hardware switch on some models. On EDGE there is no switch but you must start (enable) your Wi-Fi card by pressing Fn+F9. You are unable to do this if you don’t have Lenovo software installed. But Lenovo still didn’t write proper drivers for Windows 8.
