    Just got a Zbook 17 G3 last week looking to upgrade storage but have seen people with issues.
    so my questions are

    1. M2.0 NVMe drives which ones work or has this now been fixed via a BIOS update?
    2. SATA 2.5" drives are there any issues with these or can you put any in?

    for information spec of laptop is
    Windows 7 pro
    XEON E3-1535M V5
    M2000M GPU
    16GB ECC ram I have upgraded to 64GB ECC (Lenovo 16GB DDR4 2133MHz Memory)
    laptops direct have a fantastic offer on this at moment £47.98 per 16GB only any good for XEON CPU though

    No issues with any 2.5 drives. I've put lots on mine and it was perfect. Nvme there has been various information regarding this and I haven't touch anything other than what's been supplied. The ECC ram should work on anything it just won't give the error correction

    Many thanks will start with a 2.5" drive and hope that M2.0 issues get sorted

    Even 2.5 inch SSD's can have issues if it's a new model and has a firmware bug. Older models like the Crucial MX300 and Samsung 850 Evo / 850 Pro will work fine, just make sure that the latest firmware for the SSD has been applied.

    I dont know how many of you have seen the zbook 15u and zbook 14 ultrabook G5 online but if the 17 inch pans out that way i will leave HP for good. Very low quality graphics options and an ugly silver coating
