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

Hello

 

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).

It seemed to be a problem with the ssd itself. I return it and bought another Samsung 970 Evo and it works. So now I will add another one in the other slot.
