Introduction

This repair guide will show you how to replace the Solid State Drive (SSD) in your Lenovo Yoga 900 13” 2-in-1 laptop computer (900-13ISK). The SSD is responsible for storing long term memory on your computer, as well as the operating system, so problems booting the computer, corrupted data, or tumultuous load times could be symptoms of a failed or failing SSD. Replacing the SSD should alleviate any of these symptoms.

Be sure to unplug and completely turn off your device before you start working.

seem you just inserted 512 GB nVMe SSD for lenova yoga 900 ISK, does it ever worked out… ?

Because this 13 ISK ( with i7, 6500U core) is the first generation and can only seem support SATA m.2 SSD, not NVMe SSD as you one inserted to slot.

Many user, technicains etc, They claim Bios for earlier version( first yoga 900, with i7 6500 U) doesn’t have firmware to recognize NVMe SSDs. But 13 ISK2 version may work with NVMe SSD!

So your BİOS ( for lenova yoga 900 13 ISK, i7 6500 U core) recognize and accepts only SATA III, m.2. SSD ( like Samsung eve 860 Sata III, M2. SSD or WD….sata III, M.2 SSD..so on, etc). Besides Lenovo yoga 13 ISK ( earlier, first generation with i7, 6500 u chip) the SLOT for this has 2 notch ( suitable for SATA III, M.2. SSD)…

Hi Hawk. I have an issue with yoga 900 13 ISK. I am trying to upgrade the m.2. SSD disk from 512gb to 1tb. I want to know if that is possible.
