500 gb m.2 (ngff) ssd


#1

I received my Librem 15, and it is supposed to have a 500 GB M.2 (NGFF) SSD included. System installed itself on the hard disk, and doesn’t show the 500 GB. I opened up the laptop, but couldn’t identify the M.2 socket (NGFF socket holds WiFi card, I think). How can I find out if the 500 GB are present, and if yes, how can I make the system install itself on the SSD (which should speed up the boot process)?

Mladen,

I had contacted PURISM and in the meantime have received the missing SSD. I installed it, and the BIOS recognizes it. However, up to no, neither preinstalled PureOS or UBUNTU from USB-stick show the disk, I keep working on that (any suggestions welcome). Will try PureOS 2.1 in the next days.

Stefan, is the disk recognized from BIOS? Also, please use PureOS 2.1, it has a number of fixes and driver upgrades.

Mladen,

yes, the disk is recognized by BIOS, and also parted shows it (it says “unrecognised disk label”, but gives the SAMSUNG information). So I think it is just a matter of partitioning it. PureOS 2.0 itself doesn’t seem to see it during boot-up and therefore the system will not install automatically on it. I will try PureOS 2.1 in the next days.

OK,

I managed to install PureOS 2.1 on the SSD.

Cheers,

Stefan
