    • Please ensure that the laptop is turned off before beginning.

    • Using a Phillips #00 screwdriver, remove the eleven 1/4" screws from the back of the laptop.

    I believe these are Torx T5, not Phillips.

Thanks for the clarity of the presentation. I am having difficulty with Lenovo identifying and purchasing a 256 GB replacement SSD for my yoga pro 2 laptop. Any suggestions about what the specs of that drive might be and where I can find one would be most appreciated.

That looks like an M.2? I’m trying to figure that out myself, I’ll let you know if I find out.

Did you find it?  I would go to Amazon with part number mz-m5e250bw (it’s a Samsung card) … you don’t have to buy there.

I had to use a Torque #5 for the eleven screws on the back … the #00 Phillips was perfect for the SSD card itself.

How do you put the new one in? By reversing the process?

I am trying to find a reader for this old SSD. I purchased a M.2 NVME SATA SSD Enclosure Adapter, which I thought would work as a SATA PCIe M-Key(B+M Key) ssd reader but it doesn’t fit. Anyone point me towards a correct adapter?

Note: The form factor is mSATA. I just upgraded the SSD for my Yoga 2 Pro to a 512 GB Kingston KC600. Search this model number on eBay for the best price. Beach Audio was the retailer I went with for $75 shipped. [On second note, direct from Kingston is now only $68 shipped with a sale going on, so check their site first.][br]

Here's the manufacturer's official page:
