M2 drive
by Rayaan111 / October 12, 2017 8:52 AM PDT

Thanks for the reply most of the links in your post refer to the 2016 - early 2017 hp omen which is significantly different than the laptop that i have . i have the late 2017 laptop which got released a few weeks back .
Please see the link below for manual which contains the M2 slot.

It does have a M2 slot so basically any M2 ssd drive will do or it has to be a specific one?

Thanks for your reply and help.

So far, m.2 means I pop in a m.2 drive.

I could not locate a service manual for your model. Might be rare or just too new.

Again, most common complaint is the screw to hold it in place. May or may not come with the stick.

The service manual is here
Page 37 is about ssd installation . I can get the screw thats not the problem the problem i am facing is are all M2 drives compatible with all M2 supporting laptops or their is a specific type which is compatible.

if i buy the one listed above will it be compatible or their could be compatibility issues.

Thanks for your help.

So far, we've never checked compatibility. If it's a m.2, in goes the stick (drive.)

I can imagine that somewhere, with a million machines one time someone found a drive that didn't work, but we never give it much thought here.
