Tewodaj, It seems to me that 1. xtabond y , lags(1) pre(x, lag(1,1) ) 2. xtabond y , lags(1) pre(x lag_x, lag(0,1) ) actually provide different estimators for the same model: y(it) = y(i t-1) + x(it) + x(i t-1) + e(it). While method 1 includes L1.x (but not further lags) as instruments, method 2 includes both L1.x and L1.lag_x, which is L2.x, as instruments. This also explains why method 2. is equivalent to 3. xtabond y , lags(1) pre(x, lag(1,2) ) which still considers the same model but includes L1.x and L2.x as instruments, exactly as method 2.
