Lenovo V330-14ARR won't recognize M.2 drive

Hello people,
I just installed an M.2 drive at the available slot in my Lenovo V330-14ARR but bios and Windows won't recognize it. Any ideas?

Hi ywrgos,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Product specifications for the m.2 slot indicates support for a PCIe interface m.2 SSD drive (page 27 HMM). You can share your m.2 SSD manufacturer number to check as m.2 SATA usually is not detected.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards

Thanks for the reply. I'm trying to add as a 2nd drive an M.2 SATA SSD. This might be the problem I suppose. But if I try an NVMe will it work or am I gonna spend money for nothing? My laptop's model is 81B1001EUK.

I tried to add m-key(SATA 3) SSD to m.2 slot, it won't work. I checked abt this issue. this slot seems only support B-key(PCIe) SSD.

Hi ywrgos,

 

Greetings.

 

For the 81B1001EUK, parts lookup shows compatible m.2 PCIe SSD that you can use like PN 01FR511 Storage SSD PM981 PCIe 512G SAM along with its substitutes. Click on compatible under configuration and filter the commodity list to solid states.

 

This guarantee that the NVMe PCIe should work (SATA m.2 not supported).

 

Regards
