    to run any Linux OS you will need to update your UEFI firmware and set the SSD to operate in AHCI mode. additionally, why didn't you state the machine was a yoga 900s here instead of commenting in a completely unrelated thread? read the article in full as flashing the UEFI firmware will destroy your windows installation.

    Thanks antikythera. That is the solution.

    Lenovo offers the BIOS update (although it is actually a UEFI firmware update) here: http://support.lenovo.com/ch/en/prod...loads/DS119356

    I must emphasise any such action flashing UEFI firmware is taken entirely at your own risk and sole responsibility. I did mention the fact it will render the existing W10 installation unbootable.

    Yes I read that also, thanks for pointing that out. So the firmware doesn't just add a AHCI option in the UEFI settings, but does something more? Did anyone try this? Is it possible to flash back to the "standard" firmware?

    my understanding is it replaces the RAID mode linux operating systems cannot detect with the AHCI rather than adding an option. as windows is installed in RAID configuration you would need to reinstall it if you want to continue to use it in a dual-boot configuration.

    For some reason F26 will recognize NVMe devices flawlessly. Closing this thread as solved.
