Yoga 900 - SSD Upgrade

Can yoga 900 be upgraded with nvme or ahci drive?  Or is it limited to sata?  If so, why 100 chipset should handle this.

Re: Yoga 900 - SSD Upgrade

I put a Samsung Pro 950 SSD in my Yoga 900.  My system came with the NVMe SAMSUNG MZVLV256 drive as standard. Note this is a PCIe interface - very fast, but not compatible with a normal M.2 SATA interface.  Run "dxdiag" to confirm you have the NVMe type drive or not and buy accordingly.  You will also have to do a clean install if you get the NVMe drive because no one yet makes an external USB encolsure for the NVMe type, so you won't be able to do a simple clone.  And when you do a clean install, Windows will advise that it does not see a drive installed.  You will need to install some drivers first.  You can get them here:


It takes some time to get this done, but it works and the drive is very fast.
