Acer Predator G5-793 NVMe Support

mnewdigatemnewdigate Posts: 4Member New User
From searching I am seeing where this may be able to support an m.2 NVMe drive, but cannot locate a definitive answer. Most seem to come back to a limitation in the bios being able to see the drive. 

Model Name: G5-793

Part Number: NH.Q1HAA.002

I currently have a 256GB SATA m.2 installed running as the OS disk for Windows 10 and would like to replace it with an NVMe drive for  the same purpose (Bootable OS drive). Has anyone been successful in doing this before I purchase a drive?

    This template has two entries for ssd, see:

    However only the first storage entry supports NVME, see:

    However, you may need to purchase this adapter so that you can use the two ssd's:

    Do you know if I can boot from it or if it would just be for storage? Thanks

    You have the option of starting with it, that is, you can place the operating system and thus gain speed to the team, you will be able to note a lot about an HDD.

    I went ahead and picked up a Samsung EVO 970 NVMe drive. I first used their data migration software to clone from my current m.2 SATA OS drive to a random 2.5" SSD, then placed that in the laptop in the 2.5" spot and cloned that back to the new NVMe in the m.2 spot. Note that the first clone took 45 minutes and the clone to the NVMe took 8. I removed the temporary 2.5" drive and reinserted my normal 2.5" data drive and everything booted normally with no changes on bios so I can confirm that it does indeed function. 

  • Good thing it solved your problem! Accept also my answer as a solution!  :)
