I have had so many headaches because of this laptop, today I find a new one.
So to try and save others the hassle of the garbage documentation on this laptop, and MSI's inability to share that documentation, I give you this:
The SSD specifications for this laptop

1 x M.2 Socket 2 for B Key Type 2280 x SATA3

If you purchase an M.2 2280 SSD, it will not fit. It MUST be an M+B type connector, and it must be SATA, not NVMe.
If you try, you will run into this issue where the key slot and the socket key do not fit: https://content.spiceworksstatic.co...326/attached_image/img2699938996220556902.jpg
Even then there's no guarantee the board will support it if it's a very new SSD, it may be best to contact MSI directly to ask about their "approval list" which doesn't exist anywhere online.

This information comes from this source: https://storage-asset.msi.com/global/picture/faq/10012015@2018-0208-1152-303101@faq_01117_en.pdf

I have to thank sportkung for linking this in the pinned SSD upgrade topic: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?threads/read-this-before-upgrading-to-a-pcie-nvme-ssd.275902/
