    it will, but the issue is with whether you have SATA or PCIe SSD installed
    PCIe - uses Samsung drives
    SATA - i think that was Toshiba,

    If it's PCIe you will most likely need to custom mod BIOS for it to work - Sony never updated that to support NVMe protocol (Sony used AHCI protocol drives and if you are looking for them you will pay a small fortune and won't get the same reliability and speed of NVMe)

    you can find instruction over here

    I did upgraded to Samsung EVO 960 500GB and works well (given that SVP13 supports PCI 2.0), i'm getting almost 1700 MB/s read/write speeds,

    Hello everyone. I did a fresh start for my vaio pro 13. Now I am wondering about the hidden recovery partion on my laptop. Obviously this probably has a copy of windows 8 which I do not need anymore. Is it possible to delete/merge this partition with the c drive and how can it be done?
    Many Thanks

    I got everything working on my SVP13213CGB except for the intel gpu is constantly at boost clocks at idle no matter what settings I change. That is, until I run a 3D benchmark, then it goes down to 200-300mhz base clock instead of boosting up/staying at to 1000mhz. You have it all backwards you stupid laptop.

    Any recommendations?

    Do you have a bootable USB? You can delete/format like that. Or look up how to use the cmd-->diskpart utility.

    Hi, I'm looking to upgrade the 256gb SSD in a Sony Vaio Pro 13 to a larger capacity, preferably 1 TB. Has anyone successfully put one in? Which brand of drive did you use? Will an NVMe drive work, without having to hack the BIOS?

    Guys, I still have my Vaio but recently I did try to update the ssd and things got wrong. After the clone the new SSD boot a few times but now refuses to do it. I'm thinking of format completely the new drive. I'm looking on the drivers page, https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/support/laptop-pc-svp-series/svp1321l1e/downloads but I'm seeing some stuff, like the Vaio Control Center that it's label for the Windows 8. Is that the last version of it, the same that I had on my vaio (I had windows 10 on the vaio) ? If yes, then it's going to work on windows 10, right? And do I miss anything from the drivers page? I feel like it doesn't have all the stuff that it came with my laptop...

    WINDOWS 10 works great on the Vaio Pro 13. If certain devices don't have drivers after installation check station-drivers.com or use the Windows 8.1 driver from Sony.
