See my reply above, you can get 2.5" RAID adapters that have 2x mSATA or 2x M.2 SATA slots. See Amazon for example. E.g. "StarTech Dual mSATA SSD to 2.5 inch SATA Adapter with RAID". They are not the best but you can get 2x SSDs in there - we used them before.
True, you will not have 2 individual drives listed, but you can have more capacity or redundancy.
The other option would be a SATA multiplier/mux adapter but I have not seen any 2.5" ones. Perhaps you can find one? Assuming the BIOS does implement the specs properly and not make it up...

Do it well, worse becomes itself

Maybe it's blocked by the BIOS.
Exactly what make/model of SSD is it? (perhaps someone else will know)

Good news on this old thread! Lexar just released a 2242 NVME drive (NOT SATA) in 120, 240 and 512gb versions! https://www.lexar.com/portfolio_page/ssd-nm520/
These should work in the WWAN PCIe port because NVME is entirely PCIe, rather than SATA over PCIe. The pre-existing 2242 sized PCIe drives were all SATA over PCIe, which required SATA routing built into the PCIe port on the motherboard (which wasn't made available on the X260).
I'm only able to find them on B&H Photo Video: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1454342-REG/lexar_lnm520_256rbna_256gb_internal_ssd_nm520.htm...
The 120gb and 512gb versions are listed as "Special Order", but the 240gb version is back ordered, but at least it's something! I'm debating on if I want to put in an order for the back-ordered 240gb version.
EDIT: I was also able to find them on Amazon, but they show as a pre-order item and show as full list price (whereas B&H has them discounted): https://www.amazon.com/Lexar-NM520-512GB-Solid-State-LNM520-512RBNA/dp/B07NTXH61R/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_...

If this m2 ssd can worked on x260, it is also a great good news for china computer enthusiasts. Thank you .

Hi, Has anyone been able to complete this via the M2 Sats WLAN slot?
I picked up one of the Lexar 256GB NVME drives from Amazon for my x260. https://www.amazon.com/Lexar-NM520-256GB-Solid-State-LNM520-256RBNA/dp/B07NTXH61R
The x260 Bios can see the drive and only lists it as NWMe in the boot list. However I am unable to access the drive from Windows 10. I cannot even see it from Computer Management. I am unable to access it from a Windows 10 USB setup key either.
When I put the drive the drive into a E570 Thinkpad the Bios sees the drive as NWMe Lexar and I can access the drive in Windows 10, partition and format the drive with no fuss.
I'm left wondering if there is another setting I am missing in the BIOS to make this work?
