View Full Version : Asus G501j Laptop PCIE SSD Issue

02-16-2017, 05:15 PM
I have tried to upgrade my ASUS G501j Laptop today removing the supplied 512GB PCIE Card SSD
and replacing it with a new 1TB PCIE Card SSD ( same manufacturer Samsung )
To my dismay it does not show up in the bios and will not boot ( just goes to bios screen )
If I replace the original smaller SSD card all works well again.
Strangely the fresh windows install to the larger drive worked ok but after installing I am straight back to the bios screen and no drive detected in the bios ?
So I can only assume that windows recognises it but the bios wont boot from it ?
I contacted ASUS support who said the PCIE slot is only compatible with the smaller 512GB drive which I find odd ?
Has anybody got any further info which might help here ?
Thanks in advance.:(
