Hi:

 

If it has a Ryzen processor, a NVMe drive may work.

 

If it has an 'e' or 'A' series processor, only SATA SSD's will work.

 

This video is for the 255 G7 which is the same as your model but has the 15.6" display screen.

I know.

 

You would have to take a chance on it.

 

The video for the 255 G7 indicates that model could come configured with NVMe drives, so I assume the 245 G7 could as well.

Anytime.

 

Glad to have been of assistance.

 

Please post back and let us know if you decide to buy a 500 GB NVMe drive if it worked.

 

I am pretty sure it will.
