Thanks! yes i've re-ordered a new SSD myself to try this (I will post outcome on here when ive fitted it). 

 

I did also ask Medion support to confirm which types of M2 are compatable, response below...

 

Thank you for contacting us.

Only M.2 sata SSD will be compatible, you will not be able to use NVMe in this PC, although the M.2 port fit, then the two cannot talk with each other.
Which also would explain why your PC have problems with this drive in.

Did you try to boot from a Windows Install USB-Stick generated with the Media Creation Tool? But first remove the original SSD with the Windows-Installation.

Hi @aaronzo83.

 

I thought I'd give it a try before posting again incase I ran into problems again, but I got myself a Crucial 500GB M.2 SSD and it works great on my laptop. My computer boots up fast and software opens up much faster than it did. Works great on Linux too.

 

Here's a link to Crucial's website. It links all the SSDs and RAM sticks that are compatible with our specific laptop model.

If you just want the SSD I brought, here's the Amazon link for it.

I don't know what SSD you have, but this one I'm using won't let you down.
