Lenovo ideapad 330S-15IKB SSD M.2 Compatibility (m.2 not being detected)

2021-04-30, 22:50 PM

So, I bought the following SSD m.2: klevv cras c700 rgb 480gb m.2 nvme ssd (https://www.klevv.com/ken/products_details/ssd/Klevv_Cras_C700_Pcle_M2)

 

And installed on my laptop, but it's not detected by the BIOS. This is a PCIe Gen 3x4 SSD and according to the specs of this laptop, I though it was compatible:

 

Storage
Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high (e.g. xxxGB SSD)
Some: M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s
 (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2 PCIe NVMe)
Some: M.2 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s
 (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2 PCIe NVMe)
Some: M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2)

 

https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/IdeaPad/ideapad_330S_15IKB/ideapad_330S_15IKB_Spec.PDF

 

But I don't know what I'm missing here! Thank you in advance for your time reading and support. I wish to know if there is a possibility like upgrading Kernel or something like that.

 

Best Regards!

According to the parts lookup for your MTM, your 330s uses a SATA3 SSD, so an NVMe will not work. Some laptops can use either type, but I do not believe this one can.

Looks like there are several variants of 330S.. some are SATA, some are PCIE. If you can post your MTM number, we can figure out which one you have. MTM is the ten-character alphanumeric code usually on a sticker on the bottom of your laptop. Don't post your Serial number as that's a privacy risk, though you CAN use your serial number here to obtain the MTM. If your computer was designed to use SATA, that could explain it, though there could be other things.
