I want to install INTEL 660P 512G M.2 PCIe 2280 SSD on my lenovo legion Y520-15IKBN laptop and I need to know if it has no compatibility issues.
In Lenovo's compatibility list it appears as a valid component but in my trusted store (PcComponentes of Spain) a message appears that it is not compatible according to the manufacturer (that is, Intel).
I would like you to confirm if problems have been detected and if you have compatible alternatives to install an SSD in this laptop.
Thank you for contacting Intel® Memory and Storage support.
As we understand, you need assistance with your Intel® SSD 660p Series (5. If we infer correctly, we will appreciate it if you can review the following information:
1- Please contact your OEM (original equipment manufacturer) Lenovo* to check the BIOS settings and confirm compatibility.
2- Based on the Intel® Product Compatibility Tool https://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails?prodSearch=True&searchTerm=660p# we do not see your PC as a compatible system. That does not mean that the drive will not work. It means that the compatibility test needs to be run by the OEM or the final user (under your responsibility and cost)
Please, contact Lenovo* to check if they fully validate the usage of this drive in your system.
