Ok, unless I'm not looking at the right thing, the drive you list appears to be a Sata III 2.5 inch drive, correct? The 910 uses an M.2 SSD that looks like this.
Support specialist @Spidey posted this in another thread:
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
I know it's a bit of an effort to clone your existing drive as noboby TMK makes an adapter cable that fits those. I think you have to clone it off to any external drive, change the SSD, then clone it back.

drive that I mentioned in the thread is actually M.2 NGFF 2280SS drive - that fits in Yoga 910 connector. I know that recommended part is from Samsung but, if Crucial drive will be supported by Lenovo. Intel for theirs NUCs recommends - of course - Intels' drives, but I may change it for whatever I want. I do not mean to make Lenovo and Crucial partnership, but to support available parts from market. Samsung's drives have 2x faster bus than Crucial, but I do not need such drive (which speed is proportional to price).
I cloned Yoga original drive using dual slot Skull Canyon NUC - it is detected in this computer, but in Yoga that is not even detected in BIOS, and I cannot boot system - which is bootable in another computer.
That is not right from Lenovo - I was using for a long time Yoga13 and I was really glad because of this laptop, I was also using ThinkPad series W541, but finally decided to make change which is for me a disaster right now as most of the peripherals are not recognized or not supported by Yoga - like e.g. USB-C peripherals (HDMI, Ethernet and so on).
Guys - that is premium laptop for almost $1300, how it may be not prepared for a market needs!
