    Hello I think this is the information you are looking for:

    Storage 1: M.2 2280/60/42 for SSD*2 (one is PCIe only, another is PCIe/SATA Co-lay)
    Storage 2: 7/7.2mm co-lay (No HDD Door)
     :) :)  Smile you don't when you are going to miss a tooth  =) =)

    I see...so that mean both slots support PCIe right?

    But as you can see the table doesn't have model for my laptop.
  • Yes both M.2 slots support NVMe PCIe 3.0 X4:

    I planning to buy ADATA SX8200 pro. It's compatible right?

    Sorry, not quite sure if Angie1 answered this clearly.  I just bought Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54 and want to install an existing 256 GB SATA in M.2 second slot.  It is not recognized by the BIOS.  Do you recommend switching the existing PCIe to M.2 slot 2 and trying the SATA in slot 1?
