upgrade yoga 14 M2 slot SanDisk ssd U110 16gb to M2 2242 NVME PCIe 512BG ssd drive.

2019-07-25, 14:06 PM

The question would be. Is it possibble to change out the SanDisk U110 ssd to a faster and bigger ssd like a Lexar 2242 PCIe3x2 NVMe M2 ssd drive wich is 1650MB/sec fast and 512GB? If not than what NVMe would fit? 

Thank you for any help and answer! :)

Solved! See the solution

Good day.

 

Please post your 10-character machine type-model number from the sticker on the underside of your laptop. Please don't post the serial number, which is on the same sticker.

Where is the 16GB SSD installed? The WWAN slot?

No, this is an M.2 slot.

OK, thanks. Yesterday I was looking at different hardware manual.

 

Do you know if the existing 16GB SSD is acting as "Express Cache" for the main drive? I can't find anything definitive that confirms the slot supports NVMe SSDs, though, or if it's limited to SATA SSDs.

 

Regards.

That would make sense, but i don't know exactly what it does. Is there a way i can find out or test it to see? 

I put a picture from a diagnostic app can see from my mother board.

Yoga 14 (like 20DM) does not support NVMe. Although it has M.2 slot, it is only for SATA and not for NVMe.

OK, but what would it mean the PCI Express version 2.0 and this x4 after that?

Even if NVME is not supported, could I install a normal M.2 2242 ssd drive maybe up to 2TB, and will be recognised and work on a SATA 3 port speed than? 

Thank you for your answer!

2242 SATA drive should work (though we can't guarantee compatibility with all drives).  2242 NVMe drive will definitely not work.

 

See here and scroll about halfway down, maybe it will help explain it better than me:
