I googled as much information I thought I needed on my Lenovo X1 carbon 3rd generation. The normal places that give suggestions on upgrading hardware all said that I needed a PCIe NMVe SDD. So I picked up a Sabrent Rocket 1TB off of Amazon. I replaced it this morning. Loaded up Manjaro i3. Successful install. Reboot to 2103 SSD error.
So I tried KDE. Again successful install. And failure in the reboot.
I plugged my old HD back in and everything works perfect as it did before, so it's not my computer.
Crucial upgrade says I have the correct upgrade SSD, as does Tom's hardware. So, I thought, no worries, nice easy swap. I noticed that my old SSD actually says it's a PCIe ACHI and not PCIe NVMe as I was suggested to upgrade to. I cannot seem to find any to purchase do I still think I got the correct SSD.
After googling, I'm not the only person with the issue. Most seem unsuccessful in their attempts but a few said they got them working by updating their firmware and setting the but parameters to both (legacy and UEFI).
I have tried all the combinations suggested to no luck reinstalling Manjaro successfully each time.
My firmware is 100% up to date as of a few weeks ago. Anyone else out there successfully swapped a HD in their X1 carbon?
Search came up with very little success here and beyond. This was the only one on here.
