I am trying to upgrade the storage:
- The existing storage is a 256GB SSD, model Samsung PM871b M.2 2280, installed on an adaptor to SATA, and I guess it is Next Gen Form Factor.
- I purchased a 1TB SSD in NVMe M.2, model Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SSD, as the model says it is NVMe.
I replaced the old SSD on the adaptor and connected it back to the motherboard. However, the system was unable to recognize the new storage device.
I wonder whether the error is due to incompatibility between NVMe and SATA? If yes, is there any adapter from M.2 NVMe SSD to SATA?
Please let me know if you need more details, and I highly appreciate your hints or suggestions.
