Hi,

 

It supports only M2 SATA3 drives as we can see on page 3 of service manual:

Thanks for quick reply.  It does clarify my query. 

 

One more tough.

 

Why is it mentioned M.2/PCIe for WLAN.. Do this mean WLAN M.2 slot is using PCIe and SSD M.2 slot is using SATA lane.

So, you bought your hp 15-bs145tu and installed a m.2 ssd in it and been using it.
Can you confirm if can use this m.2 in my hp 15-bs145tu

It is sure that hp 15-bs145tu has m.2 slot. The question is, does it has SATA or NVMe

Hi,

 

@neevan_reddy

 

on page 3 of service manual we can see that it only supports SATA M2 drives

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05493257

 

@pvnnpavan

 

It is possible that the WLAN card M2 slot has one pcie lane connected to it, however it will not be able to be used with a M2 PCIe ssd.

 

Hope it helps,

David

The page 3 of that manual, only says what a user should and shouldn't do with his/her laptop. Where does it say that laptop only takes SATA M2 drives.

From what I have seen, if there is a NVME, it was mentioned specifically for that model.  I saw the same for one model of HP 360.

 

It seems this one have SATA M.2 only with can go upto 500+Mbps..

Its either SATA II, or SATA III

 

II - upto 3 Gbps

III - Upto 6 Gbps

 

if you are using SSD, you can get maximum performance when you connect to SATAIII, since SATA II limits speeds to 200-300 Mbps.
