I'd like to buy this Y700 : 80NV00HNFR and I was wandering which SSDs were compatible
I've read many posts but i'm not sure about this particular model...
I know the Samsung 850 evo m2 works but I'd like to get the SM951 AHCI
I'd use the SM951 AHCI for booting windows 10
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for the fast response
The manual tells me that the PM951 (PCI-e NVME) and the PM871 (SATA) are compatible (I think), but it sadly doesn't tell me that the SM951 (PCI-e AHCI) is compatible. The discussion link you gave me shows that it might be the case though, so I'm not sure...

Hi Horusxav ,
Basing on the FRU listing as you have confirmed (PM951 (PCI-e NVME) and the PM871 (SATA) are compatible) and it may be a problem in the recognition of the BIOS for a SM951 (PCI-e AHCI) .
Checking also on other new systemboard BIOS , if the BIOS boot don't provide option for switching to AHCI then usually BIOS detection appears to be a challenge as far as what I noticed on OEM machines.
I would rather recommend to have the ones listed on the hardware manual as it was tested compatible with the model.
Update us how it would work best for you.
