how to install Samsung 970 PRO Internal PCI Express 3.0 x4 (NVMe) SSD into P52, if compatible

2019-07-12, 3:16 AM

so I'm considering getting a Samsung 970 PRO 512GB Internal PCI Express 3.0 x4 (NVMe) SSD for my P52 as a second SSD. How do I install it? Do I need to buy anything additional like I would need to for a SATA drive (which in that case is the bracket/cable)? 

 

Also, where is the official SATA stuff for the P52? This website doesn't look official.

To install NVMe drives, you do not need anything. Simply insert it into the second NVMe slot if it is your second drive.  You might need the screw. I don't believe that Lenovo provides the extra screw for extra drives not present when shipped.

 

If you want to add an SATA drive to your P52, you need to order the following:

 

Lenovo 4XB0L63274 HDD_bo Thinkpad Storage Kit

 

You can find it for super cheap on Amazon.

that cable does not stretch far enough, at least from the vids I've seen. Are you sure the unit itself doesn't come with the screw needed? This vid seems to imply the screw is already in there.
