HI

I am looking to buy GP72 7RDX-452CA Leopard
https://ca.msi.com/Laptop/GP72-7RDX-452CA-Leopard

I would like to remove Hard drive and bootup with Samsung 960 pro 1T NvME (PCIexpress) drive.
Is not clear, if i can use the 960 pro.

My question:
Is it possible to use that drive?
Can i boot up with the pci-e?

Thanks
Steph

Why do you remove the HDD?
There is a M.2 slot for us to install M.2 SSD. GP72-7RDX Specification page: https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GP72-7RDX-Leopard/Specification
This M.2 slot supports both M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD and M.2 SATA SSD, it should be possible to use the SSD.

BUT I find the PCI-E SSD related information on MSI FAQ and it mentions that PCI-E SSD might have thermal concern since it is hotter than SATA SSD. 
You should contact local service center for further information before buying the PCI-E SSD.

First, thanks to take the to answer

I want to remove the HDD because it is very slow.
In the worst case, i will replace it buy a SSD.
But i need speed.

I made a test:
 restart the laptop (all application was close) from windows 10
After a few minutes (about 2-3 minutes) w10 was ready to use.
(in my head, that is no sens)

Maybe SSD should be ok.
But if i need to open the laptop to upgrade, why not put the best drive!!!!
