Can I add Samsung 970 Evo Pro 500 GB (NVMe) on Lenovo Thinkpad P50



I have already tried yo add an Samsung 970 Evo (NVMe) but is failed with error 2104. When I talked with helpdesk on Lenovo they told me that wasn´t compatible. I wonder if the Samsung 970 Evo Pro. Or should I use a older model for example Samsung 960 Evo Pro.

I cannot respond directly to your situation but here's another data point:


My Samsung 970 Pro 1 TB drive installed and runs in my P70 (Win10, Xeon, ECC RAM) , with no issues whatsoever.  Do you have the correct tray for your P50 (I understand there are separate mounting kits with trays and connectors, for each of the NVME and SATA M.2 variants).


P70, Xeon 1505 CPU, 64 GB ECC RAM 2 x 512 GB NVMe Drives, 1 TB HDD, DVD-RW, 4 K Display, NVIDIA Quadro M4000
W700 model 2757-CTO (8 GB RAM, Crucial MX-100 SSD + Hitachi TravelStar 1 TB 7200 RPM Drives, Bluray R/W, NVIDIA Quadro FX3700M, WUXGA); Windows 7 Ultimate SP-1, W700 Mini-Dock
