    Question Questions about ASUS FX502VM-FY244 - SSD M.2

    Hi guys,

    Please i need some guidance to order an ssd for my ASUS FX502VM-FY244 Laptop.
    Specs https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-FX502VM-7th-Gen-Intel-Core/specifications/
    It’s the variant with
    -i7700 HQ
    -12 GB ram
    -gtx 1060 3 GB
    -1 TB HDD 7200 rpm
    I am looking for an M.2 500 GB SSD with nvme but I am not pretty sure if is compatible with – M.2 nvme .

    HWInfo shows the motherboard to be an Intel HM175 Express Chipset but I couldn’t find any documentation&manuals on https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-FX...lpDesk_Manual/ or in the specification page.

    My confusion comes from this -> because on the specification page says only about sata III SSD, but here is the GL502VM with the same chipset HM175 and is listed with sata III and 128GB/256GB/512GB PCIE Gen3X4 SSD https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ROG-...pecifications/ witch is a bit confusing, isn’t the same chipset ?
    Here is the HM175 chipset specs https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...ets/hm175.html

    Any safe bets ?

    My thought is to buy a Samsung 512GB NVMe 960 EVO PCIE Express x4 M.2 2280 (normal or PRO) SSD to boot Windows 10 from it and the 1TB HDD to be used as storage but I want to be sure is compatible and also if windows can be booted from the m.2 sata and if there is any specific set up to be made in bios ?

    I am ready to follow-up any other recommendations regarding the type of witch m2 ssd to buy .

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    Thank you!
