    So it means that any Samsung NVMe Drive will work? Or ny specific model?
    In Bios i can only see AHCI options.
    Thanks

    Hi there,
    If the spec is qualified, then it would work.
    If you have any issue installing the SSD yourself,
    please kindly send it to our service center and we can install it for you.
    Thank you.

    I have pre-installed an m.2 sata3 HYNIX HFS256G39MND-2300A 256Gb.
    The m.2 slot on the board it as an M-key, so a PCIe Nvme card will physically fit.
    I wanted to install a Nvme of course .I bought GIGABYTE - Disco SSD 128GB M.2 NVMe GP-GSM2NE3128GNTD but i did not worked , damm .
    I went to the crucial Crucial site they have an option scan my computer and give me upgrade options m the are the results
    https://www.crucial.com/scanview/890DFC0D31D926C3
    The give PCIe options .
    Do you think it is possible they work?
    If the bios upgrade is the same for all GL552VX models is it possible that some boards work with Sata and other with PCIe it is a hardware difference?
    Help please i am stuck...
    Thanks a lot guys

    Hi Até, Blake,

    You may want to refer to my earlier post #9 in this same thread partially copied further below, but the GL552VX motherboard is not able to support SATA3 M.2 SSDs and PCIe NVME M.2 SSDs at the same time or with the same motherboard unfortunately.
    If the GL552VX motherboard shipped and is working with SATA3 M.2 SSDs, it will not be able to support PCIe NVME M.2 SSDs as Até has found already.

    Since it's better not to publicly share the notebook serial number (I may worry too much though), feel free to send me a PM at cl-Albert@ROG of Até's notebook serial number and we can discuss more privately or at this post when appropriate to explain.

    Thanks.

    Many newer models appear to have found way around this and support both SATA and PCIe M.2 SSDs, but this apparently does not apply to the GL552VX, so if your system works with SATA M.2 SSDs, don't expect you can get any PCIe M.2 SSDs working, but feel free to investigate or discuss with more people.

    Thank you a lot ai already send you a PM,with serial umber, and some notes, that i will share here maybe it will help someone.


    Note 1:
    I have talked by chat with asus ,and one of the assistants gave me alist af disk that would work. Saying

    "This laptop supports some NVMe disks
    SAMSUNG/MZHPV256HDGL-00000
    SAMSUNG/MZHPV512HDGL-00000
    SAMSUNG/MZVLV128HCGR-00000
    SAMSUNG/MZVLV256HCHP-00000
    SAMSUNG/MZVPV512HDGL-00000 "

    Further investigating i realized for example that Samsung SM951 - MZHPV512HDGL-00000 is not really an NVMe disk but in truth is a disk belonging to the transaction period from sata to nvme, where where some disk in this case for example that use the pcie bus but use the AHCI protocol , not Sata, but PCIe AHCI, which where much faster that Sata, but not so fast as PCIe with NVMe protocol which are the modern ones.
    Benchmark and explanation done with Samsung SM951 AHCI model MZHPV512HDGL-00000 model,
    https://www.storagereview.com/review...m-2-ssd-review

    This is the same disk but using NVMe:
    https://www.storagereview.com/review...m-2-ssd-review



    Note 2:
    If i went to crucial site they give me some compatible m.2 disks, and i talked by chat and talked to 3 different assistants just to make shure and all of them said to me that those NVMe disk will boot over AHCI protocol, or that are recognize by AHCI protocol specially the P2 and the P5 models, but i have not tried it .
    https://eu.crucial.com/scanview/9C9F419731D926C3

    So it seems there where some disks from the transaction period of technology where my laptop belongs where there where, for example, the SSD Samsung SM951 AHCI model, hich is not not NVMe, but not Sata as well. It uses the PCIe bus and AHCI protocol not NVMe protocol.

    My model it has on the bios AHCI options only.

    Hi Até,

    Thanks for your PM and serial number which shows your notebook came preinstalled with a 256GB SATA3 M.2 SSD as you know already and is also using the GL552VX motherboard which can only support SATA3 M.2 SSDs.

    Please understand for the older GL552VX model as well as other GL552 motherboards they cannot support both NVME M.2 SSDs and SATA3 M.2 SSDs with the same hardware or motherboard.
    Or said another way, we use a different GL552VX motherboard to support SATA3 M.2 SSDs which is not the same GL552VX motherboard to support NVME M.2 SSDs.

    Unfortunately, many people including some ASUS staff are not aware of this and thought the same motherboard can support both NVME M.2 SSDs and SATA3 M.2 SSDs which is not true for the GL552VX and other GL552 models.

    Some newer ASUS notebook models (not GL552 series) can support both SATA3 M.2 SSDs and NVME M.2 SSDs with the same motherboard, so some people may expect the situation is the same with the GL552VX, but it's not true.

    ===================================

    As mentioned in Note 1 , the approved NVME M.2 SSDs that were provided were for the GL552VX notebook with the motherboards that support NVME M.2 SSDs, but this is not the motherboard you have according to the serial number you provided.

    If you talk to ASUS staff again, you may want to ask them why the description for your motherboard in the serial number key parts list mentioned "SATA" as below (and why our system includes some GL552VX motherboards with NVME in the description if they are able to check this more).
    Since they do not expect customers would know about this information, you may want to let them know you have been discussing with ASUS staff on the ROG forums who reported different GL552VX motherboards are used to support SATA3 and NVME M.2 SSDs, and suggests they look into this more and get back to you.
    =================
    GL552VX MB._0M/I7-6700HQ/AS R2.1(V4G)(SATA)
    =================

    As far as Note 2 goes, it's similar to Note 1, but if your GL552VX motherboard hardware cannot support NVME M.2 SSDs and only supports SATA3 M.2 SSDs, the bios settings are irrelevant.
    I'm not sure if any PCIe AHCI M.2 SSDs were approved for the GL552VX, but the motherboard supporting only SATA3 M.2 SSDs would not be able to work with them either.

    Feel free to discuss if you wish, but as far as I can tell, you will not be able to get any NVME (or AHCI) M.2 SSDs working for your GL552VX notebook and only SATA3 M.2 SSDs will work as you have found so far.

    If any GL552VX customers have the motherboard supporting NVME M.2 SSDs though, they will be able to use NVME M.2 SSDs although they cannot use any SATA3 M.2 SSDs.
