    Hi,
    Most probably you could be able to install a M.2 NVMe SSD in your model because I had a F5-573 and used a Samsung NVMe SSD in it, anyway, please make sure you have Maximum link width value of 2x for one of your PCI Express Root Ports, you can install HWiNFO64 free program, run it and expand BUS, expand PCI Bus, highlight each PCI Express Root Ports and find the value in the right pane, all the necessary information with pictures in this link:https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/497241/acer-aspire-e5-575-52jf-m-2-nvme-support/p1
    Please "Yes" for "Did this answer the question", if I resolve the problem.
