journalctl -b | grep nvme


Please edit your post and use preformatted text tags instead of blockquote tags. Use the </> button or put the output between three of these: ```

It does not appear your drive is detected as an NVME as no details about it are listed at all. What's the brand and model?

Model of my ssd

  Hardware Class: disk
  Model: "LITEON CV1-8B512"
  Vendor: "LITEON"

Ah, I saw Lite-On and thought it was an optical drive. I didn't know they made SSD's. :crazy_face:

How about:

sudo dmesg | grep -i 'error\|warn\|exception'

Here you go, Chief! :joy:

Those warning aren't related to the issue and probably can be ignored.

Check your BIOS settings under something like SATA Operation and make sure it's set to AHCI.

The is no option about this.

I think that AHCI is the only drive mode. So there wont be a configuration option.

Well, so much for that idea. Let's see your full dmesg output.

sudo dmesg > dmesg.log

That will save the output to dmesg.log in whatever folder you're in. Paste the contents somewhere like dogbin and link it here.

EDIT: Also make sure you have the latest BIOS installed. It looks like it's a pretty minor update, but you never know. It would be best to search by your serial number just to make sure you find the right one.

Is it safe to share al of this info? :no_mouth:
I have the latest installed from lenovo's support website.

It's just the kernel message buffer output, there shouldn't be any personal information. You can always censor something if needed.
