P72 M.2 NVMe to SATA adapter tray

2019-04-07, 16:40 PM

Hi Guys, I have just purchased a P72 which originally came with just one M.2 1TB which has the OS. I have purchased 2 Samsung Evos 1 TB each and have installed them In the M2 slots. Now I am trying to install the original M.2 in the SATA slot but can’t find any compatible adapters. I have already purchase the original bracket for SATA from Lenovo but can’t seem to find an adapter for the m.2 to SATA. Any pointes

I do not think that is going to work for you.  The M.2 slots are NVMe slots.  You would need to buy an M.2 to SATA casing.  Btw, your NMVe SSD will be limited to SATA speeds (550MB/s).


You can look at something like this:




Of course, you will still need the SATA cable for your P72 which is NOT supplied if you did not order a 2.5" drive with your unit...
