Re: 512GB PCIe hard drive available on ThinkPad Helix 2nd Generation?

2019-03-29, 13:35 PM

I believe you missread my post lol.  But in case I failed to explain myself clearly [which I am sometimes guilty of so might be my fault] I specifically meant pro devices that can run in sata mode.  Some can, some can't.. the 950 pro some people have said works, some said it didn't.  I used the 860 pro [I think it was 860, it was 8something.

 

The helix 2 requires a sata compatable pcie drive to boot.  It won't work with NVME drives unless that drive can operate in a sata mode for booting then swap to NVME once os is started. It's fully capable of reading NVME drives, just not booting from them.
