After replace the SSD with this new one, I turn on again the laptop but it never boot; The keyboard light is on, and the screen is ligthing.
Im tried to access to the bios but the (fn)/F2 and the (fn)/F10 are not working to access to the BIOS.

Any idea about how i can fix it?

Hello and welcome,

 

Use the Novo button to access BIOS.  Page 11 of the User's Guide:

You don't say which 730 you have, but the way I read the base specifications they both require a PCIe SSD, not SATA.

Understood.  That doesn't change my reply.

 

Use the Novo button to access BIOS.  That SSD is not compatible with your laptop.

The only list I have access to is the parts list:

 

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-730-15ikb/81cu/par...

 

"show more" will give you the SSDs that Lenovo currently specs with that machine.

 

I'd expect any 2280 PCIe (not SATA) drive to work but can't verify that personally.  Perhaps others who have made the swap will join this thread.
