    I say that cl-albert settled this a few reply's back. if your notebook is not work it must be defective return to vendor if in the return time period. Otherwise RMA. Asus is not being helpful with the upgrading of these notebooks
    M.2 is type of connection, PCIe is a BUS, there currently seems to be 3 different Hard drive Variations that all connect to this connection NVMe, AHCI and SATA, you have to determine which standard type you Mother Board uses. As with the G751 its best to buy a notebook that already has a M.2 SSD factory installed and supported by Asus Support
    Any other problem would be not having the correct type of M.2 SSD AHIC, SATA or NVMe.
    PM cl-albert he is and Asus employee and is working hard to try to sort this all out so that we will have a exact correct answer in the mean time wait to save yourself a lot of aggravation to upgrade until the problems has a fully correct solution. He will post a sticky as soon as he is sure of how to solve this issue for everyone.

    I've experienced success! (I hope) I picked up the Samsung 850 EVO M.2 Series 500GB SATA III #MZ-N5E500BW installed it and it shows 465.64GB in disk management. I won't have time until later this week to install the operating system and programs to be sure but it's looking good so far. I'll keep you all updated.

    To the guys who managed to integrate ssd to this laptop, please tell me if it's worth it, and if it really improved the speed when you install the OS in ssd.

    Yes SSD are in a whole new category as far as speed of the OS and booting are concerned. Day and Night difference. The M.2 variations are even faster than the 2.5" versions. the issue is with this new technology Asus has let us down by not having the correct information for us to upgrade these notebooks. Case in Point notebooks that come with the M.2 SSD work very well, the issues are coming up because people want to save money on the front end and purchase notebooks with out the onboard M.2 SSD. We had the same confusion with the implication of UEFI eventually most of us figured it out. Still we see post from people that have no idea that UEFI is very different from BIOS. Hopefully Asus will get it together and give us the correct information for installing these M.2 SSD. In the mean time if your notebook does not work as advertised take it back to the vendor that is the only way to get Asus's attention.

    " there currently seems to be 3 different Hard drive Variations that all connect to this connection NVMe, AHCI and SATA, you have to determine which standard type you Mother Board uses."
    1. Could you provide detailed instructions as how to determine what type of motherboard one has so we get the correct drive?

    2. If we know the type of Mother Board we have and then buy the SSD that is recommended, is it guaranteed to work then? (or at least supposed to)...

    I dont think we know of a way to tell yet. If we can collect some mobo info, we may be able to determine it. I think the NVMe version uses the PCIe X4 slot. I have the NVMe drive that came in the laptop from Asus and show this in HWiNFO:

    Performance readings from the drive. Someone said the write speeds were not very fast on these drives. I haven't experienced that yet.

    GL752VW issue with M.2 SSD not working

    I bought the Samsung 950 pro 256GB PCIe and the Bio and windows doesn't recognize it. I keep seeing post but have not found one that shows how to fix this issue or if their is a fix. Would like to know if Asus plans on fixing this issue with clarity? I have bio ver 207 with win10.

    GL752VW HWiNfo64

    There is a lot of confusion on this thread courtesy of the GL752VW-DH71 and the G752VL-DH71 having a similar model number. Just to be clear, I am an owner of the GL model, here is the link to the exact model I purchased: http://www.amazon.com/GL752VW-DH71-1...rds=asus+gl752

    Like many of you, I am hesitant to purchase an SSD for the M.2 slot. In an effort to help with the motherboard data gathering, below is a screenshot of my motherboard slots via the program HWiNFO64. It appears the GL752 has completely different PCIE ports (most notably no x4 port) than the G752 model, leading me to believe solutions for one model will not help the other. If possible, if someone could recommend an SSD for the GL752 specifically, I'd greatly appreciate it. Please let me know if I can provide more info from my laptop.

    This is the M.2 SSD card I installed on my GL752 laptop last week. It's a Samsung Evo 850 M.2 Sata III

    1. Did you buy this exact one from this amazon seller specifically?
    2. Did you use the Samsung data migration software? (if not which did you use)
    3. Does the GL752 come with a screw to secure it to the mother board? The Samsung SSD does not come with one.
