Pro NVMe adapter Does not fit ! ?

PLEASE  READ !   ( updated : April 15, 2020 )
  Before attempting to do this modification, you should study the situation carefully.
There are many helpful posts in this thread and in other threads on this forum.

Many have encountered extreme problems with this modification.
Three main problems,
1) the physical fit of the SSD into the allotted space
2) the software inter-action with the SSD
3) the power requirements needed to run the SSD

and various smaller problems.

many have succeeded with this addition to their Pinebook Pro,
so it IS possible. but Please proceed with caution.

    Hello,  Luke,  TLLIM,   or  ??

          We seem to have a clearance problem with the M.2 NVMe  adapter  and card not quite fitting into the allotted space.
 
  ! !    It is hitting the underside of the touch pad.
      *         Causes the touch pad to lift out of place when the cover is closed
      *          And the touch pad to not respond properly.

      >  I have replied to the persons that experienced the problem over at the first impressions thread.
      >   I made a few suggestions to them on possible fixes,

      *      but   it may be better with some official intervention ?

       After thinking about it,  I figured this should have its own thread  ? 
       Though if those sound like acceptable solutions, 
          maybe you (Admin) could move my previous posts those over here  ?


          Is there a "Factory Approved"  solution  ?

        I have already received my adapter,  waiting on my own PBP.

                            ************************

 Luke has informed me they have resolved this issue.
 DO NOT INSTALL until you receive the 'kit'
**  They will be mailing to everyone who has previously ordered the PCIe/NVMe adapter.

UPDATE  January 26, 2020
  (No kit recieved yet)
I think the whole Pinebook Pro case would need to be redesigned to make some people happy.
But a few forum members have found ways to make the parts all "Fit together"  and work.
See the POST by @danielt a very nice job with his installation, Great pictures and very good description of his work.
Also a good install job with pictures by @Wizzard.
  You may need to dig back a way into the old forum posts,  but there is a lot of Great stuff in those older posts..!
