Using a Samsung NVMe SSd 960 Pro on Elitebook 1040 G1

HP Elitebook Folio 1040 G1
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

is there any chance of using a "Samsung NVMe SSD 960 Pro" on a HP Elitebook 1040 G1?

We have bought one because the storage was to short and we wanted to upgrade to 500GB.

 

The Problem is that the 1040G1 doesent even recognise the SSD.

 

Please help.

 

Regards,

Harald

An M.2 NVMe SSD is  unlikely to be compatible with your notebook. The NVMe controller is the  issue.

 

See the following Crucial memeory web document for a guaranteed compatible 500GB M.2 (NGFF) SSD

For your question about a 1040 G3 

Yes. It is compatible with the NVMe single sided 2280 M.2 SSD

 

For the HP EliteBook 1040 G2 it is compatible with the   Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SATA SSD

 

 

HP Omen 15 and 17" - some models. I can find a list of some that are known to have support  for NVMe

Spectre 13-v000 series Yes

Spectre 13-3000 series  Yes

Spectre  x360 - 13t-ac000 series  Yes

 

Here is a link to a list of notebooks of various models and brands compiled at a third party website for NGFF M.2 SSD compatibility with

I can confirm to you that my own Elitebook 745 G3 works with the Samsung EVO 960 NVMe (non-Pro edition).
