Ideapad 720s-ARR - NVME ONLY!?

Hi

 

I have an Ideapad 720s ARR Ravenridge that came with the SK Hynix 256GB NVME SSD. Since I need more HD space I wanted to upgrade it to a news Samsung EVO 860 2TB M.2 which is SATA and not NVME.

However the BIOS is not detecting the new drive. So i treid another M.2 SATA drive (Sandisk 128GB) and that also does not show up in the BIOS?

 

So myquestion: Does the ideapas only support NVME drives via M.2? - that would be the 1st time I hear about this, usually it is the other way around

Hi blub,

 

Greetings. 

 

Would you have a have the machine type model (MTM) from the sticker or get it from here. This would allow us to be specific with the variant of your model.

 

In general, each variants share same M.2 SSD form factor specification using NVMe protocol for the PCIe interface it uses. OEM recommended parts would also show the same supported SSD type.

 

Regards
