    well story goes.. i got os x 10.10 and 10.11 in main hdd and wanted to boot win10 from spare hdd but wont detect
    then i read similar case and someone states
    "make shortcut on desktop to DVD then turn off and plug hdd in and now click on dvd icon, will force it to turn on and shows u files!"

    so that got me thinking.. if it works that way it must be the dvd eject power control in dsdt _EJT.
    but im no sure if thats the only issue.

    i will try to mod dsdt to make it think its second hdd not dvd ejectable and flash to bios.

    anyone got any input ? :eek:

    seems its the power requirements.
    ordered a more compatible for T410 for a 1$ more being $8.39
    read reviews and learned not to buy without checking peoples reviews.

    As I wrote in that other thread, I use the HDD Caddy instead of DVD Drive since years with no any problems in Windows, just couldn't and wouldn't tell anything about a Mac!

    I encourage you to look to the hardware engineers to troubleshoot as soon as possible
