Use WWAN slot for a NVME M.2 2242 SSD in thinkpad P53s?

2020-09-11, 21:15 PM

Hello, I'm trying to figure out whether or not I can use WWAN slot for a NVME M.2 2242 SSD  in my thinkpad P53s. Is there anyone here has experience with it?

 

In the P52s, many people are able to use WWAN slot for a NVME M.2 2242 SSD, but can not confirm that it's bootable (able to install an OS such as windows or Ubuntu and boot from it).

In the thinkpad P53s document, storage section: • M.2 2242 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2 => which they imply the WWAN slot?

Thank you and good day.

Hello, I am able to use a NVME SSD 3.0x2 in the WWAN slot, windows recognised it and I can use it to store data and so on. But when I try to install the OS (windows, etc), the process seems OK but when I restart again, the error appear:

 

1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the network card (15B7/5005/15B7/5005).

System is halted

 

Anyone has experience with this? Is this a blocking thing in BIOS?
