    Hi, sorry to sort-of-necrobump this thread, but I picked up a refurb ZBook 17 G2 last year and I'm gradually expanding/upgrading the hardware.

    Reading through this thread, it looks like 2280 cards will work, for the most part. Question: now that higher capacity ones are available, is there a limit on the size? There are some affordable 1gb 2280 cards out now, but I have no idea if they're compatible.

    Thanks!

    Edit: I'm just going to use this as a storage drive, and not a bootable one, so thankfully I won't have to deal with that potential headache.

    I have 1TB m.2 2280 NVME PCIe3 x 4 lanes installed (SM951 I think) and it works flawlessly.

    I have installed SDAPMUW-512G (Western Digital® PC SN520 NVMe™ SSD) with adaptor M.2 2242 to M.2 2260.
    OS is Win7 with using SD card as booting device(UEFI).

    Installing Win7 was made in several step:
    - Use SATA SSD (to get proper drivers for NVME in Win7 SP1(Windows update))
    - Transfered SATA SSD to NVME disk.
    - Prepare SD with UEFI partition (follow instructions on page 14)
    - BIOS Customized Boot, SD card boot, UEFI Hybrid, SATA AHCI

    Test result with CrystalDiskMark (827/810MB/s)

    Crucial P1 M2 NVME 500G works fine in Zbook15g2 W10 as a secondary disk, 2280 size fits tight but easy with electrical tape over wireless module and screw hole to avoid metal-metal contacts and hold in place. Plug and play as secondary fast drive, not yet tested as OS / boot drive.

    So if I understand correctly and to sum up these 100+ posts, the only disk that can be used as a direct replacement without any hacks to make it bootable is the LITEON-CX1-JB512-HP. Is that correct?
    Could I install any other m.2 form factor ssd with higher capacity that can be used for OS without any hacks?

    Regards

    Yes, that is correct - no other SSD will work as a direct replacement without a hack.

    That disk is impossible to find. Anyone here that upgraded to 2280 ssd and willing to sell the LITEON-CX1-JB512-HP to me?

    Where about's are you based? I purchased mine from eBay in 2016; I was lucky, someone was taking a drive out of a ZBook 15 G2 and selling it. Here is what you're looking for: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/283483821847

    Hope that helps ...
