The M.2 slot (Item "U", Fig1, page 17, Technical Product Specification), is for SATA SSD, while the other slot (Item "L") is for NVMe Gen 4 SSD. See also Storage in Table 1 on page 14 in TPS.

The short M.2 slot may be also used for PCI1 and USB 3.2 expandability.

Since Leon didn't specifically address it, the size of the M.2 SATA SSD should be 22x42. You can find drives as large as 2TB in this formfactor.

Hello @Tiw


About the Linux Distribution, Intel has validated Canonical Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux to be compatible with the unit. It doesn't mean that other Linux distributions will not work; because they are on the list for the compatible operating system that Intel has validated to work. Other distributions may also work.


The information is found on the following website. You may need to choose your Nuc model on the site (https://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails?prodSearch=True&searchTerm=NUC11TNH#)


I hope you find this information helpful.


Best regards.
