Title says it all. Saw someone said there was issues with 970 pro NVME, but no details.

I have Samsung 970 Evo 250GB and it works without a problem (except ram issues, but this is another matter)

970 Pro 512GB NVME appears to be working fine with Lubuntu 18.10

Wish I had known there wasn't a NVME fixing screw included so that I could have ordered one, had to bodge a mount with a screw from an old laptop that sort of fits.

Anybody used an Intel NVMe? Like 760p Series? I plan to use an Intel SSD 760p Series (512GB, M.2 80mm, PCIe 3.0 x4, 3D2, TLC).

There is one single thread from someone reporting his H2 running into booting troubles. His H2 didn't boot (DRAM related) with a random NVMe SSD inserted that got hot. Later he tested with another SSD and this one got hot too: viewtopic.php?t=32970

In other words: NVMe is a standard (this is a drivers/kernel thing), PCIe is a standard (this is a controller thing and this controller lives inside those Intel Gemini Lake SoCs) so there exists no reason why NVMe SSDs shouldn't work flawlessly on the H2 unless there's a powering or other hardware problem (potential board dependency).
