Tell us about yourself!
Be interested to hear how that goes. I guess one could substitute an M.2-to-SATA adaptor for the mSATA-to-SATA one.
OK, thanks. I think I have more of a hardware/BIOS problem - the 5470 just never recognises a drive in the WWAN slot. Bit annoying really, having this second drive available (as Dell said it would be) was the main reason for buying the laptop from them...One last question if I may - did you install a drive in the manner described by coryhamma? Did that boot?ThanksAndrew
Hi - thanks for that; I assume the drive in the WWAN slot didn't even show up in the "One time boot" menu (F12)? It's all a bit odd. Dell support assured me such a drive would be recognised and bootable, and I've been in contact with another chap who can boot his E5470 from a WWAN drive. Which doesn't help you or me! I think I'll have to resort to Plan B, and put the Transcend in an external USB 3 enclosure. Not ideal but at least I can use the drive.
HiInteresting. I've been trying to get a Transcend M.2 SSD 430S to work in my E5470 - Dell tech support assure me it should work. However, long story short, the laptop does not recognise either the OEM Liteon SATA drive or the Transcend SATA drive in the WWAN slot; it recognises both in the "native" M.2 slot. Did you have to change any of the settings in BIOS to get your drive to work in the WWAN slot? [Please don't tell me you just plugged it in and it worked!!!] Are you able to boot from the drive in the WWAN slot?ThanksAndrew
