SSD & mSata Possible ?
Hi all,

Loving the AK1 , however I have fitted a Kingston 120 Gig Msata drive and installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 Professional onto this, I have also formatted and have the 32gig drive showing under Win 10, however I have tried to get the unit to see my Sandisk 120gig SSD and for the life of me , the unit will not see the SSD which is plugged into the hard drive caddy at the bottom of the AK1, which then uses the USB C connection.

If I take the Sandisk 120Gig SSD out from the bottom and connect it to a USB 3.0 to Sata USB adapter and plug the Sandisk drive into this (USB 3 port) the same drive is seen, without any problems. I have checked connections and everything appears to be fine connection wise.

My question is is the unit capable of running both a msata drive insidethe unit along with a SSD drive in the bottom of thr hard drive caddy?

I think I have read in another post on here another person is having what seems to be the same issue.

Please advise.

Thank you

Having put the drive in again after formatting it using the USB Sata adapter the drive (after a reboot) is now being seen. So I can now confirm that my AK1 is booting off the internal Kingston 120gig mSata drive, and can now also see the SanDisk 120gig SSD and also the Toshiba 32gig eMMc drive.

And to add that I installed a fresh Windows 10 Professional OS, by using the Microsoft Media Creation tool, and selecting USB as oppose to in .ISO format, inserted USB stick into USB 3 port and then pressed F7 upon powering up the AK1 and selected my USB boot stick , upon which Windows 10 Pro was installed.

All device drivers are also setup, and finally after a day of tinkering on and off have the AK1 basebuild complete ready, just need to run Windows 10 updates, and once that is sorted will then use Acronis to create a backup image of system, of which I will then be able to revert to within a couple of minutes should I need to at some point in the future.

Any questions please ask away,as  always happy to help.


See attached images showing all three drives and all devices within Win 10 Pro setup correctly.
