What's the diff (apart from the capacity) between:

256GB Solid State Drive M.2 2280 NVMe, Opal 2.0
&
512GB Solid State Drive M.2 2280 PCIe, Opal 2.0

Does the NVMe and PCIe affect anything at all?

Latest Vega Mobile Driver Updates, have to force install but at least it is the correct model
After update and restart run the catalyst control panel installer inside.

I bought mine at 72rmb.
It's just 5 bucks more for totl Intel AC card.
It's worth it.

If you go for realtek, rather just stick with default qualcomm.

Planning to order soon for e585.
Going for the specs as per below

- Ryzen 7 2700U
- 8GB (1pcs)
- IPS screen
- 512 PCI-E SSD
- no HDD (likely to reuse my evo 850 if not will be HDD from my Portable HDD 1TB since 1 year bo touch, gotten this as free gift from purchasing acer aspire 5 - FX9800P)
- 65W charger
- all the 1 cents items

By using sgnight code (buying at night) should be around $947-ish if i remember correctly.

After which will buy intel 9260ac wifi card and 8gb ram from taobao. Did not choose 8+8 configuration at lenovo web is due to the price which is $110 more if i choose 8+8. Might as well use that money to buy ram and wifi card from taobao and likely lesser then $100 (likely getting micron rams).

Are you on Win10? So far the Qualcomm seems ok. Still monitoring before I decided to get the AC9260....

Anyway that AC9260 is still a shitty card
Should have bought a Qualcomm Atheros Card
AP is TP-Link Archer C7 v4
Link Rate 866Mbps

Intel AC7265

Intel AC9260

The AC7265 result looks good. Which Atheros Card you were targeting?

Does it take long to update the bios?

Using the Lenovo vantage to do the update.

I see the flash.exe window pop up with a oem check and it's just stuck there?

Run as Admin?
Proably hang or unable to continue.
May have to try use BIOS to update or bootable BIOS update.
