I bought Lenovo Yoga 910 with a 256 GB SSD. I decided to buy a 512 GB SSD and chose the Crucial MX300 M.2 CT525MX300SSD4. When installed in a laptop in the BIOS, he was not determined. I think this is because of its incompatibility. Has come
Now the question arose: which SSDs are compatible with this 512 GB / 1TB laptop from the existing ones? Who has already changed and has had a positive experience, what models of SSD at 512GB / 1TB did you choose?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi Sergey_RU ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Based from the hardware specification (page 26)offered on the system :
SSD • 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB, NGFF (PCI-E)
FRU part list on item 6 page 59 recommended compatible parts :
5SD0L07883 SSD, PM961 Samsung MZSLW1T0HMLH-000L2 PCIe M.2 1TB SSD
5SD0L56325 SSD, HFS512GD9MND-5510A M.2 512G SSD
Hope we hear more of other community members experience on their upgrades.

Hi Sergey_RU ,
Platform specification : M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4 would appear similar to Intel 600p 512GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x4 .
Challenge on upgrades mostly on how OEM BIOS recognize it from its whitelist as compatible device.
If that is a spare that you don't have to purchase, then it can be worth a try else the following are certified fine:
Samsung(PM961) PM961 MZVLW512HMJP PCIE 512G SSD
Hynix(PC300) HFS512GD9MND-5510A M.2 512G SSD
Samsung PM961 Samsung MZSLW1T0HMLH-000L2 PCIe M.2 1TB SSD

After replacing SSD, I encountered a problem. Windows stopped normally detecting battery power. As soon as I put the SSD on, Toshiba stops detecting the battery level and the laptop can just shut down unexpectedly when the battery runs low. At the same time, the charging of the battery does not work. When the laptop is turned off, everything is fine, the battery is charging. Apparently there is some incompatibility. I had to return the old Samsung SSD back. I'll look for compatible SSDs.

Hi Sergey_RU ,
I think mechnically battery recognition is ok as issue may just be component application like energy management tools are ones missing. What if you try to clone the old drive to to it?
I would suggest that you start a new post for this new issue so that we could get others to share their thoughts on their upgrades too specially with the battery recognition within the OS.

I tried different options. I install on the SSD Toshiba Russian and English versions of Windows 10 pro and Home. In all cases, there were problems with charging the battery under Windows.
When installing Windows 10 pro or Home on Samsung's SSD, which was inside the laptop, everything worked fine. When I just bought a Toshiba SSD, I cloning Windows 10 Pro to a new disk and everything worked fine for about two weeks. After receiving the next Windows updates, there were problems with determining the battery charge and charging it.
I tried to install Windows on Samsung's SSD and cloning it to Toshiba. Did not help. Immediately after cloning, the same problems began.
Now I've clone system from SSD Toshiba on Samsung SSD and everything works fine.

I have a Yoga 910 that had a PM951 AHCI 256gig, and I switched it out for a Samsung 950 Pro NVME 512gig and it works fine but it dosnt seem much faster at times, and the computer dosnt reconize the drive correctly since none of the Samsung SSD software dosnt work or reconize the drive nor can I update the firmware, other than that it runs fine.
