I recently bought ThinkPad P52S with following storage option:
1TB Hard Disk Drive, 5400rpm, 2.5", SATA3
and realized that I need to change this one for
256 GB Solid State Drive, PCIe NVMe M.2 drive
I am affraid even this laptop supports both models it is not easy to make this upgrade.
Actually, I would like to know which parts I need to order from lenovo in odred to replace old SATA HDD with new one M.2 PCIe NVMe drive (I already have one).
I tried to do it using Support - Parts & Accesories - schematic view TP_T580_P52s_Main_FRUs Components on the page:
but, honestly I could not relize what I should order.
I guess that I need one internal cable, and metalic mount "box" (size similar/same to existing SATA HDD) which contains 2 connectors (one for cable which connects mainboard and "box" (I am not sure does existing cable is good), and other connector where I should inserd M.2 PCIe SSD.
I would appreciate if someone can advice which part numbers i need to purchase in order to make feasible usage of the M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD instead of aforementioned SATAIII HDD.
Thanks in advance to all of you!

I had a little trouble figuring out the machine type model numbers for the P52s, but I believe the following parts are what you need:
01YR466 - M.2 Adapater Cable, TC-2
01YR457 - M.2 Adapter ASM for Tachi-2(20L9/20LA/20LB/20LC), TC-2
I would strongly suggest calling Lenovo support and confirming this before you make a purchase, though.

Thank you for provided data.
It works perfetly well. Actually delivery of the spare replacing parts took long time but once i got all the parts (both you said) it was hassle free instalation.
I bought samsung 970pro m.2 ssd and can say that my P52S now is like flash!
