Hi nandhul30,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

As shown in the specification overview of the hardware manual (page27), the option of adding an m.2 is for data cache up to OEM recommendation of 16GB. 

 

Recommended m.2 NGFF SATA are listed here along with the substitutes (click solid state on commodity type):

 

Part number 04Y2169 16G,M.2,2242,SATA6G,LTON,STDSOLID STATE DRIVES

Part number 04X4456 16G,M.2 2242,SATA6G,SDISK,STDSOLID STATE DRIVES

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi nandhul30,

 

From the original specifications , this option is intended as a data cache not as added storage up to 16GB.

 

It may work with larger capacity or as additional storage theoretically but there may be settings that you need to change if the BIOS allows it. I personally would suggest to test it first with a spare SATA NGFF 2242 before any purchase.

 

Regards
