    The point is to use any old system
    And a very good one.
    My everyday-use computer is a Lenovo P300, assembled in 2013. It is only a year younger than the M92, and the whole Ivy Bridge family.

    "The Lenovo M92 was released in 2011, adding NVMe support is an incredible upgrade. It can boot Windows 10 from a cold start in around 12 seconds!"
    Simply not true. At best, you gain five seconds at boot time.
    He is using Windows 10, not Windows 7.

    So, instead of running the command, put the machine into sleep mode, do not shut it down:

    Once the machine has gone into a sleep state, wake it back up again by pressing a key on the keyboard or moving the mouse. When it comes back on, run the command:
    The problem is, m92 doesn't go into "sleep" ---it suspends, then turns off the machine. I need to press the power button to reanimate, and when I run the fptw.exe command it gives the same 'error 280' response.

    XP doesn't go to sleep.
    Vista doesn't go to sleep; and Vista-help says a firmware limitation in BIOS prevents sleeping.
    Win 7 doesn't go to sleep.

    On m93 I have to make an effort (and I do) to prevent sleeping, but on m92 sleep is NOT available by default; and gpedit.msc cannot turn it on, either.

    The NVMe card and the adapter cost more than an SSD.
    if I simply insert a $20.00 SSD into $25.00 m92, none of this frustration is encountered, and i7-3770 runs at blistering speed

    Just for the fun of it, I purchased one of the above-mentioned, nvme-enabled Ivy-Bridge motherboards. Managed to install Win7 on it. Now I know doubly that this excercise in futility is really not worth the effort ----much less the money. But it is a way to pass time in the rainy season.
