    but bear in mind this is a PCIE SSD not a standard 2.5 SSD !

    I realize that but I thought that the difference lay only in the manner in which the drive is connected to the bus
    and in the speed of data transfer. I did not think it affected the structure of the drive itself or the manner
    in which it was set up, ie could be partitioned just like a regular hdd.

    From the specs that I can tell from the laptop model number you posted, this laptop does not support NVMe M.2 drives, you'll need an M.2 Sata III drive with slots B&M on it.
    And that Samsung PM961 is an NVMe drive

    Agree !
    What a minefield these PCIE cards are with so many different types / formats / standards / fits.
    No wonder I ended up with one that does not work !!!
    many thanks to all who contributed to this thread perhaps it will help others with this subject ? :biggrin:
