    I was able to fit 2280 in Zbook 15 G2 but it requires some bravery - I cut off the compartment latch
    and used isolation and duct tape to mount the Samsung pcie m.2 disk. I works perfecty at 820MB/s read speed.

    Hi all - just took delivery of my SanDisk A110. Will I be able to use the HP recovery disks to install Win7 Pro 64-bit on this drive? My original drive is 1TB HDD. I don't have access to a Win 7 disk or ISO for a clean install :(

    Hi just following up and answering my own question: Yes there is no troubles using the HP recovery disk to get a clean install on the SanDisk A110. Worked a charm first time.

    OK, so not everything is fine with the Samsung disk. If it is plugged-in - I can not boot from USB - has someone a similar problem?

    Try disabling secure boot in the bios

    Not much use bothering with them if all you get is 820 mbs is there? Wonder what the Sandisk will do besides fit in the slot.

    I don't understand the previous posters attempts to use a Sata drive in that port. What am I missing? Not trying to be snooty but are there ports on other MBs that will accept either pcie or sata?

    Yep, 800MB/s is weak - I put the drive in my wife's NUC and NUC gets 1.2GB/s out of it.

    Also there are certaibly bugs in BIOS - After some debugging I discovered that I can only boot Linux and not Windows and only in UEFI mode.

    Does not look like Zbook 15 G2 is ready for m.2 pcie
