Hi,

 

I have a lenovo yoga 520 14ikb (80YM0007BR) and i don't find in hardware manual the types of supported SSD M2. 

 

B Key, M Key or B+M Key? Sata, NVNE or both? 

 

Anyone knows ?

Your machine's  M.2 is pci/e 3 x4,

Hmm page 77 item 12 shows FRU.

Ie, Pm961, also known as Samsung 960 EVO. 

https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-MZVLW256HEHP-PM961-256GB-Internal/dp/B06VYJMLS8

 

xx961  is OEM part;  960 xxx is the reseller part.

 

Yes a 970 EVO will work in your machine.

No. That is a Sata interface.

You need a PCI/e interface 3x4.

Will it work with this SSD as well for the Lenovo Yoga 520?

Hi guys,

I need your help. I have a Lenovo Yoga 520 80YM0004BR. I bought a SSD 970 EVO Plus from Samsung. I used Samsung's own data migration program to clone my 1-Tera HD. I also installed the NVMe driver from Samsung's website before the cloning procedure. Everything ran without problem. The Software detected the SSD and did the cloning without problem. The issue is that in Setup I could not configure the boot to use my SSD. I've already changed Boot Mode to Legacy, but even so, it takes a while and then system uses the normal HD. The SSD device also does not appear in Windows Explorer, but when I run Sangung Magician it is there, only it says "No volume found". I am sending the screens of my setup. If someone have a solution for this problem, I really thanks a lot.
