Thanks Radioguy. I am going to stick with mSATA so I can be sure it will work. Greg

It will not work. There's not mPCI-E slot in the T460 where you can plug a mSata SSD (unless you use a 2.5" to mSata adapter in the drive bay).

 

T460 doesn't support M.2 SSDs either.

Just more regret I didn't wait for a T460S.

Is the m2 really any faster? I think not. nvme is. But sata is sata.

apparently you can use nvme drives on it with a connector.

Sadly, that isn't relevant to the original question of whether the WWAN slot would support a M2, NVME, mSATA, or Mini-PCIe SSD.

 

Such adapters as the one you mention have been around for a few years, even generic ones, and work on virtually any laptop with a 2.5" SATA bay.

 

Fitting a SSD in the otherwise empty T460 WWAN slot was what some of us who bought the T460 were disappointed we couldn't do; not that we thought we couldn't use all sorts of drives in the 2.5" bay...

Hi guys,

 

I have just got an old T460 up going and was researching using the blank WWAN slot for a boot drive and then having a 2.5 data drive.  I was boyed by the existence of an NVME0 option in the bios boot options but this thread dashed those hopes.  I then found the following link on the lenovo website https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/au/en/downloads/ds119265 that has given me hope again.  

 

Has anyone out there successfully used an NVMe0 drive for their boot drive and had a HDD in the laptop as well. If this doesn't work has anyone been able to use the SD drive slot to boot off and again us the HDD slot for a larger data drive.

 

Cheers

No to everything.  SD card is not a boot option.  The WWAN slot will not take an NVMe drive and will not take a SATA drive.

Well bugger then. So is the nvme0 option in the bios a function of a common bios across models or is this for using an nvme0 card in the SSD slot?
